First pics of Scarlett Johansson in apparent Species remake

10.24.2011

Scarlett Johansson is currently filming a sci-fi thriller called UNDER THE SKIN, directed by Jonathan Glazer (SEXY BEAST). It has a very familiar plot...

Johansson plays an alien on earth, disguised as the perfect aesthetic form of a mesmerizing woman. She scours remote highways and desolate scenery looking to use her greatest weapon to snare human prey -- her voracious sexuality. She is deadly efficient, but over time becomes drawn to and changed by the complexity of life on earth. With this new found humanity and weakening alien resolve, she finds herself on a collision course with her own kind. Taking her point of view throughout, the film presents a unique look at our world through alien eyes.

Like SPECIES mixed with a little bit of MONSTER.

In Case You Don't Know has posted some pics from the set. Enjoy these and check the site out for more.

What do you think? SPECIES ripoff or no, watching Johansson play an alien sexual predator has a certain... appeal.

Will there be t*t?

ScarJo is hot but she ain't no Natasha Henstridge in her prime let's face it. And if she ain't nude in this it's pretty much guaranteed this will be a flop.

Happy to hear Glazer is back directing, the man is probably one of the more interesting directors around and with Johansson in full on sultry mode how can you lose?

Michel Faber's 2000 novel (which this film is an adaptation of) is nothing like 'Species'.
The aliens have sex with humans in the same way that humans have sex with hamburgers.

But will she be nude in it? That's the real question.

looks like she downloaded the wrong fashion info when she was on her way to earth in her spaceship. must have been the 80's hooker info. LOL! the synopsis does sound cool though.

Species sucked. Watch Lifeforce if all you want is space alien nudity.

Freeden speaks for many. Natasha Henstridge showing the goods is the only reason anyone cared about the original. Scarlett has to live up to that or else skip it.

I'd be more down for this if I knew that she was going to be nude. Obviously that's not going to happen, and considering seeing Natasha Henstridge nude in Species was my only interest in that fairly bad film, this one has only a mild interest.

Yeah I'm a fan of Glazer as well and as much as the initial premise might seem like Species, I'm sure the movie won't be similar in any other way. The premise sounds like a good fit for Glazer's dark and elegantly strange sensibilities.

Like fury said, Glazer's music video work is stellar. I dig Sexy Beast, especially its opening sequence and while Birth has some flaws, I think it's highly underrated and a great dark fable.

I am so down for this.

His music videos are awesome, Sexy Beast was great, and even though Birth ultimately failed, it was still an interesting watch, I'm in.....

Thats a very 80s look. Glazer can make a good film, so this should be alright, Species or not.
