MADRID, 24 June. (CulturaOcio) -
It seems that Scarlett Johansson will continue to be linked to Disney after the premiere of 'Black Widow'. The Oscar nominee for 'Marriage Story' and 'Jojo Rabbit', she will star in the film adaptation of the Tower of Terror, which will be based on the famous Disneyland attraction.
According to Collider, the person in charge of writing the script for this bet is Josh Cooley, screenwriter of 'Inside Out' and director of 'Toy Story 4', for which he won an Oscar. Although the plot is unknown, the dynamics of the attraction will be a central part of the film. Johansson, in addition to starring in the film, will also act as a producer.
The attraction, inspired by the principle of fallen towers, has its own history. According to legend, on October 31, 1939, on Halloween night, the tower, which was part of a luxurious hotel, hosted a party on the top floor of the building, the 13th floor. Unfortunately, lightning strikes the roof and the elevator, in which five passengers were, ends in a kind of fourth dimension. At the same time, a large part of the façade disappears, to the surprise of those present.
It is the second film based on the attraction, the first was 'The Tower of Terror', a telefilm produced in 1997, directed and written by D.J. MacHale and starring Steve Guttenberg and Kirsten Dunst.
It will be a new commitment by Disney to convert its Disneyland attractions or theme areas into movies, as has already happened with the 'Pirates of the Caribbean' saga, titles such as 'The Haunted Mansion' or 'Tomorrowland', as well as 'Jungle Cruise' ', whose theatrical release is scheduled for July 30 and, directed by Spanish Jaume Collet-Serra, stars Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt.
