Scarlett Johansson will produce and star in the science-fiction drama Bride for Apple and A24 from director Sebastián Lelio.
Bride follows a woman created to be an ideal wife — the singular obsession of a brilliant entrepreneur. When she rejects her creator, she’s forced to flee her confined existence, confronting a world that sees her as a monster. While on the run, she finds her true identity, her surprising power and the strength to remake herself as her own creation.
Johansson and Jonathan Lia will produce Bride through their company, These Pictures. Keenan Flynn will co-produce. Lauren Schuker Blum (Orange Is the New Black), Rebecca Angelo (Wolfman) and Lelio are on board to write the script.
Sounds like an intriguing update to Bride of Frankenstein, maybe?
