Scarlett heads for Amazon

Scarlett Johansson is to fulfill an ambition to play an Amazon warrior in a movie.

She will play a gladiatrix from 200BC who exacts vengeance on an army that destroyed her homeland in Amazon, reports Variety.

The idea came after Johansson told screenwriters Alex Kurtzman and Bob Orci she wanted to play such a part while they worked together on The Island.

Kurtzman and Orci, who will co-produce the movie, commissioned Dirk Blackman and Howard McCain to write the script.
