Scarlett Johansson Joins Woody Allen Project

Scarlett Johansson is set to join the cast of Woody Allen's 36th movie, replacing Kate Winslet, who dropped out Friday. Winslet reportedly wanted to spend more time with her family.

Johansson joins cast members Emily Mortimer and Jonathan Rhys-Meyers on the feature, which is due to begin production shortly at London's Ealing Studios.

Johansson most recently signed on to do "Mission: Impossible 3". Other projects include "The Black Dahlia", "The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie" and "A Good Woman".
