Scarlett Johansson is back in action with Disney’s Tower of Terror movie. This project is more than just an acting gig for her; she’s also producing it. Johansson is a big Disney fan, which makes this project special for her. She talked about it on TODAY, confirming the movie is still on despite recent delays.
The movie’s had a bit of a rocky road. Remember when Johansson had that legal issue with Disney over Black Widow’s streaming release? That put things on hold. But now, it’s all systems go. The script is getting a polish, and Johansson’s excited to dive back in.
Josh Cooley, known for Toy Story 4, is writing the script. Taika Waititi, who brought us Thor: Love and Thunder, is set to direct. That’s quite a team! They’re bringing new life to a story first told in a 1997 TV movie with Kirsten Dunst and Steve Guttenberg.
The Tower of Terror is no ordinary story. It’s based on the Disney theme park ride, where hotel guests meet a spooky, supernatural fate. The details are still hush-hush, but if it’s anything like the ride, expect some chills and thrills.
Johansson is keeping busy with Disney. Besides Tower of Terror, she’s also working on a secret Marvel project. It’s not about Black Widow, though. She’s clear that Natasha Romanoff’s chapter is closed, despite rumors.
This Tower of Terror movie doesn’t have a release date yet. But it’s good to know it’s back on track. It’s been a long wait since the idea first popped up in 2017. Fans of both Johansson and Disney are surely eager to see what comes of this revived project. Let’s hope the wait isn’t too much longer!
