Scarlett Johansson To Make Directorial Debut With Capote's Summer Crossing

Posted on Sat Nov 19, 2011 02:01 PM PDT

scarjo-first-movie.jpgScarlett Johansson will direct the big screen adaptation of Truman Capote's Summer Crossing, according to Entertainment Weekly.

The film is about a teenage debutante who "rebels against her penthouse parents and their high-society ways", and Tristine Skyler will write the screenplay. Capote began writing the book in 1943, but it wasn’t published until after his death.

Johansson will not be appearing in front of the camera, and this isn't the first time she's stepped away from her role as an actress. In 2008, she released her first album, Anywhere I Lay My Head, which is a compilation of Tom Waits covers.

Think this will be any good?
