Scarlett Johansson will be expanding her career as a movie director. The Hollywood actress is set to make her directorial debut in ‘Summer Crossing’. It is a movie adaptation of Truman Capote’s long lost novel. As per the reports, the ‘Iron Man 2’ actress will be teaming up with Oscar-winning producer Barry Spikings in the upcoming movie.

The story in Capote’s book is set to be of the New York City over the course of the hot summer of 1945. However, it focuses on an 18-year-old young woman who breaks free of her rich family to discover her own identity and sexuality. The novel was written by Copote in the 1940s. But it was lost for half a century before eventually being published in 2005.

Earlier in September, the 26-year-old actress Johansson told Women’s Wear Daily that she has always wanted to direct a feature film since she was a kid. She said that she wanted to direct since she was 12, since she watched Bob Redford direct ‘The Horse Whisperer’. She said that she was like she needs that job then.

However, the New York-born actress will be seen starring opposite Matt Damon in ‘We Bought a Zoo’. The movie is set to hit U.S. theatres on December 23. Her other upcoming movies include highly anticipated superhero picture ‘The Avengers’ and sci-fi drama ‘Under the Skin’.
