Scarlett the Amazing Amazon!

Vairety reports on a project that'll certainly sound appealing to the menfolk out there: Curvaceous cutie Scarlett Johansson has signed on to play a butt-kicking and revenge-minded lady gladiator in "Amazon."

"Signature Pictures has made a deal to finance "Amazon," a vehicle for Scarlett Johansson to play a gladiatrix from 200 B.C. who exacts vengeance on an army that destroyed her homeland.

Dirk Blackman and Howard McCain will pen the script.

Idea for Johansson to play an Amazon warrior came from the actress, who mentioned it to scribes Alex Kurtzman and Bob Orci while they worked together on "The Island."

They drafted Blackman and McCain, who just wrote "Outlander," a period Viking saga that McCain will direct for Ascendant Pictures and the Weinstein Co."

I pray that she does some kind of exercises to look at least a little athletic. Am I the only one that desires that the woman who are supposed to be kicking peoples asses have some muscle on them?

Could be good and entertaining, kinda surprising that it's Scarlett though. The director could make a world of diference so hopefully they get a good one.
