Scarlett Johansson will produce and and is set to star in Bride, a “genre-bending” film from Apple and A24. Sebastián Lelio, who has helmed female-fronted films like the Oscar-winning A Fantastic Woman, Disobedience and Gloria, has been tapped to direct the feature, which he’s writing with Lauren Schuker Blum and Rebecca Angelo.

The plot follows a woman created to be an ideal wife — the singular obsession of a brilliant entrepreneur. When she rejects her creator, she’s forced to flee her confined existence, confronting a world that sees her as a monster. It is on the run that she finds her true identity, her surprising power, and the strength to remake herself as her own creation.

Johansson is producing the pic with Jonathan Lia of These Pictures.

The pic marks the latest in the Apple-A24 first-look partnership that includes the Sofia Coppola-Bill Murray reteam On the Rocks, which hit Apple TV on Friday, and The Sky Is Everywhere starring Cherry Jones and Jason Segel.

Johansson stars in the anticipated Black Widow stand-alone from Disney and Marvel. Initially slated for release in May, the film is now on the theatrical docket for May 7, 2021. Johansson and These Pictures are repped by CAA and Morris Yorn.

Lelio is repped by 42 MP and Management 360 and Granderson Des Rochers.

There were inferences galore of Donald Trump as Thanos at Senator Kamala Harris’ fundraiser tonight with some of The Avengers and the Russo brothers, as the 2020 election clearly moves into endgame territory.

However, on the birthday of the VP nominee and amidst ample discussion of the “importance of honor and courage and unity,” one absent Avenger and the former Celebrity Apprentice host were marquee players too on Tuesday.

Sen, Harris made a distinct point of mentioning the recently deceased Chadwick Boseman and how she wanted to “honor his life and the memory of him.” On the flip side, the first woman of color on a national ticket told Captain America himself Chris Evans that “I couldn’t agree with you more about the fish, by the way.” Earlier in the evening, before Harris joined the event, Evans had told donors that “I think the fish rots from the head down” in a swipe at Trump.

Punctuated by a surprise appearance by Robert Downey Jr and the candidate’s husband Doug Emhoff, the blockbuster of a Hollywood and DC crossover saw Sen. Harris chatting virtually with Evans, Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow), Mark Ruffalo (Hulk), Don Cheadle (War Machine), Paul Rudd (Antman) and Zoe Saldana (Gamnora). With donations as low as $1, the 70-minute grassroots fundraiser was as much an exercise in PR as finance for the Democrats’ ticket

First of all, I’m a huge fan, so I’m like a kid right now being with all of you guys and all together,” California’s junior Senator told Joe Russo. “And Don has been a friend for a long time and Bridgid (his partner) and I just want to thank you guys for what you’re doing to put yourselves out there, to be so engaged and to speak up in this way because you certainly don’t have to,” Harris told the Russos and the assembled Avengers. “And you’re all so talented.”

The self-declared Black Panther fan then addressed the death of Boseman on August 28 from a long battle with cancer.

“You know, actually where I am now, the studio from my D.C. headquarters, if you will, is at Howard University,” Sen. Harris stated. “And that’s – Chadwick and I actually both attended Howard University and I think about him all the time, there are monuments and memorials set up on campus to him and he was a very dear friend,” she added, with obvious sadness in her voice.

“We all know honor and decency matters, and it matters whether you are saving the universe from Thanos or fighting for the soul of our nation,” Sen Harris said at another point. “Joe Biden feels very strongly about this too,” she added of her poll leading running mate, the former VP.

“If the Avengers can assemble from across the galaxy, then the American people can get together from wherever we are, whoever we voted for in the last election, and whatever language our grandmother spoke and come together to get our country on the right track,” Harris noted as the hard-fought election moves into its final two weeks.

“I just wanted to drop in and say happy birthday to my superhero wife,” the clearly pre-recorded video from Emhoff exclaimed. “I wish we could be together watching yet another Avengers movie right now, but this is a next best thing,” the potential First Man (think about it) added.

“One of the last times we saw you all together Thanos tried to snap his fingers and kill half the universe, but thanks to science we solved the problem,” Emhoff went on to say. “But the threat we face now isn’t entirely different. A global pandemic, a climate crisis, and a president who is making it all worse. He is a villain fit for the Marvel Cinematic Universe, except he tweets more, and he’s an active superspreader.”

Of course, by the very nature of the fundraiser and its primary participants, there was some fun and games too.

For one thing, Saldana sang Happy Birthday to Harris when she joined the event about 20-minutes in. “That was the saddest rendition of ‘Happy Birthday’ anybody’s ever sung,” said Rudd with near perfect comic timing.

While Anthony Mackie (Falcon) was unable to get on the Zoom call, Downey did make it and Iron Man helped lead the group and Harris in a movie trivia round, for better or worse.

Yet, with all that, overall, the tone kept coming back to the seriousness of this election for America, democracy and the world.

When Johansson asked her what kind of superpower she would like to have, Harris said that it was “the ability to see a world and imagine a world where we have peace and we have equity, and where we cherish this God-given planet and where we value education of our children and then imagine that and then work to get that. I think that is an incredible quality that is actually a super power when people have it.”

Disney has postponed the release of fall blockbusters such as Marvel’s “Black Widow,” Steven Spielberg’s “West Side Story” and Kenneth Branagh’s “Death on the Nile” by several months. The results are bad news for the exhibition industry, which is facing fierce headwinds after closing for months due to coronavirus.

The studio has kept the late November release date of Pixar’s “Soul,” surprising some in the industry who had expected the animated family film to either move to a later perch or get released on Disney Plus. The moves set off a cascade of distribution shifts that will upend the theatrical landscape for months. Other Marvel releases, such as “Shang Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings” and “Eternals” will all debut deeper into 2021. Disney’s release date shifts all but guarantee that box office revenues this year will reach a nadir — analysts have already projected that domestic grosses would decline between 70% to 80% due to the pandemic.

“Black Widow,” starring Scarlett Johansson, was set to debut on Nov. 6, a date that started to look increasingly unlikely as movie theaters on the coasts remained closed. Variety previously reported that the studio was eyeing a new time to unveil the film on the big screen after the disappointing performance of Christopher Nolan’s “Tenet” in the U.S. and the delay of “Wonder Woman 1984.” “Black Widow” will now open on May 7, 2021.

“Death on the Nile” — a follow-up to 2017’s box office hit “Murder on the Orient Express” — will bow on Dec. 18, 2020, vacating its original Oct. 23 premiere. “Death on the Nile,” a murder mystery based on Agatha Christie’s novel, appeals to an older moviegoers, a demographic that might be hesitant to return to indoor spaces during the pandemic.

“West Side Story,” which marks Spielberg’s first foray into musicals, was expected to be a key Academy Awards contender. An awards career may still be in its future, but not at this year’s Oscars. “West Side Story” will launch a year later than expected, on Dec. 10, 2021 instead of Dec. 18, 2020.

Due to the interconnected nature of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, “Black Widow’s” move shifted back other installments in the superhero franchise. “Eternals,” a comic book adventure about a super-powered alien race, will debut on Nov. 5, 2021. It was previously dated for Feb. 12, 2021. Chloé Zhao directed the film, which stars Angelina Jolie, Richard Madden, Gemma Chan and Kumail Nanjiani.
Nanjiani endorsed the move on Twitter, saying “Marvel made the right and responsible decision.”

“Nothing is more important than health & lives,” he wrote. “I can’t tell ppl to go to a movie theater until I feel safe going to one.”

And “Shang Chi,” Marvel’s first film with an Asian lead, has moved from May 7, 2021 to July 9, 2021. Destin Daniel Cretton will direct a cast that includes Simu Liu as the titular martial arts hero.

Meanwhile, “Deep Water,” Adrian Lyne’s thriller with Ben Affleck and Ana de Armas, will no longer open on Nov. 13, 2020. It will instead debut on Aug. 13, 2021.

Two films will actually bow earlier in the schedule. “The Empty Man,” a horror film with James Badge Dale, will be released on Oct. 23, 2020 instead of on Dec. 4, 2020. “The King’s Man,” previously dated on Feb. 26, 2021, will move ahead two weeks to Feb. 12. However, the latest entry in the spy franchise was initially intended to launch this month.

A number of movies have been postponed following the release of “Tenet,” including Universal’s horror thriller “Candyman” into 2021 and STX’s disaster film “Greenland” with Gerard Butler. Part of the reason that studios are reluctant to release major films is because there’s no sense of when New York and Los Angeles, the two biggest moviegoing markets in the U.S., will be able to open theaters. Cinemas in other parts of the country that have been able to resume operation haven’t seen huge business.

Nearly 70% of movie theaters in North America resumed operations in recent weeks, with many timing their reopenings to the release of “Tenet.” Now, exhibitors face the potential of months without new content to offer audiences.

Below is Disney’s upcoming slate:

2020

“The Empty Man” — Oct. 23

“Soul” — Nov. 20

“Free Guy” — Dec. 11

“Death on the Nile” — Dec. 18

2021

“The King’s Man” — Feb. 12

“Raya and the Last Dragon” — March 12

“Bob’s Burgers” — April 9

“Ron’s Gone Wrong” — April 23

“Black Widow” — May 7

“Cruella” — May 28

“Luca” — June 18

“Shang Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings” — July 9

“Jungle Cruise” — July 30

“Deep Water” — Aug. 13

“Beatles Get Back” — Aug. 27

“The Last Duel” — Oct. 15

“Eternals” — Nov. 5

“West Side Story” — Dec. 10

The Chadwick Boseman tributes keep rolling, and on Sunday night following a commercial-free airing of Marvel’s “Black Panther,” ABC News aired a tribute special in which his other Avengers, including Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Don Cheadle, Chris Evans, Jeremy Renner and more, paid their respects to the late star.

Boseman died on Friday after a years-long fight with colon cancer, during which time he became one of Hollywood’s biggest stars with performances that included four Marvel films and the Spike Lee movie “Da 5 Bloods.”

“‘Black Panther’ is hands down the crowning achievement of the Marvel Universe,” Downey told ABC’ News. “It was the one that people got to vote with their ticket sales and say we require this overdue diversity.”

“I didn’t have enough time with Chadwick,” Cheadle said. “It’s a statement I know everyone is making, but everyone can make because he was here far too short a time.”

“Chadwick was a deeply kind and gentle person and very present and thoughtful, and those qualities are so present in his work,” Johansson said.

Boseman’s work was recognized by his past co-stars in Marvel films as well as those who would’ve soon shared the screen with him in Marvel’s Phase 4 of movies, including “Shang-Chi” star Simu Liu and “Eternals” star Angelina Jolie each giving statements.

“I know that I ride the coattails of his success that I stand on his great shoulders,” Liu said in the special.

“He gave all of us and all of our children a great example of a humble leader,” Jolie added.

Boseman was also well known for taking the parts of many Black historical figures, including Thurgood Marshall, Jackie Robinson and James Brown, and non-Avengers Oprah Winfrey and Whoopi Goldberg explained why those performances did just as much to help make him heroic in the eyes of so many.

“The way he handled his life and handling cancer with such grace and humility lets us know that he truly was a superhero,” Winfrey said.

“This loss is felt around the world, people in every country. He was pretty amazing. He is Wakanda forever,” Goldberg added.

Check out a segment from the larger special below that also features brief clips from Mark Ruffalo, Jeremy Renner, Tom Hiddleston, Clark Gregg, Benedict Cumberbatch, Elisabeth Olson, Pom Klementieff and Sebastian Stan.

“Chadwick came to the White House to work with kids when he was playing Jackie Robinson. You could tell right away that he was blessed. To be young, gifted, and Black; to use that power to give them heroes to look up to; to do it all while in pain – what a use of his years.” — Former President Barack Obama tweeted Saturday.

“Chadwick was not only a deeply soulful and powerful actor, but he was such a kind, thoughtful, funny and gentle person. He brightened every ones day every time he walked into our hair and makeup trailer or on set with his beautiful smile.” — Scarlett Johansson, who co-starred with Boseman in three Marvel films, said in a statement.

“Mr. Boseman leveled the playing field while fighting for his life… That’s heroism. I’ll remember the good times, the laughter, and the way he changed the game.” — Robert Downey Jr., another Marvel films co-star, said in a tweet.

“There’s a reason (Chadwick Boseman) could play Jackie Robinson, Thurgood Marshall, and King T’Challa with such captivating depth and honesty. He, too, knew what it meant to truly persevere. He, too, knew that real strength starts inside. And he, too, belongs right there with them as a hero—for Black kids and for all of our kids.” — Michelle Obama, former first lady, wrote in an Instagram post.

“To honor the life, contributions and memory of a truly extraordinary son of South Carolina @chadwickboseman – I have ordered the flags atop the Statehouse to be lowered to half-staff tomorrow, Sunday August 30, 2020, from sunrise to sunset. The two flags will be removed at sunset and will be presented to Mr. Boseman’s family at the appropriate time.” — Henry McMaster, governor of South Carolina, said on Twitter.

“A great human being, who while silently suffering with terminal cancer, still used his talent to be a vessel, which he would with that God given gift, inspire, encourage and motivate a people and the entire world to be better someones, a better place for everyone, to get us all to a higher ground. Please let us love on his Dear Wife and Family. Wakanda Forever!!!” — Stevie Wonder, in a statement.

“I want to dedicate this pole to Chadwick. What he accomplished and the legacy he left is so incredible to me. He’s inspired a whole generation of young black men and women and provided them with a true superhero to look up to. Rest in power my friend.#WakandaForever #blackpanther.” — Lewis Hamilton, Formula One world champion, wrote on Twitter referencing his latest win in Belgium on Saturday.

“I am devastated by the news of Chadwick’s passing. He was one of the great actors and men. He radiated warmth and wisdom: talent and deep kindness.” — Sienna Miller, who co-starred with Boseman in the film “21 Bridges.”

“A consummate professional, he absorbed every story, every memory and every photo and film excerpt he could consume to help translate the soul of an American hero. And now, Chadwick will be etched in history as a hero in his own right, especially have shown millions of Black and brown children the power of a superhero who looks like them. Chadwick — may you rest in peace eternally. Take your place among the greats. You earned it.” The Jackie Robinson Foundation said in a statement, noting Boseman worked closely with the baseball great’s widow Rachel for the film “42.”

“I’m heartbroken at the loss of #ChadwickBoseman. He was a tremendous actor who brought some of our community’s heroes to life. My prayers are w/ his family. His legacy will endure. Wakanda Forever!” — Maxine Waters, congresswoman from California, tweeted.

“Rest gently, King. Chadwick Boseman.” — Beyoncé wrote on her website.

“An immense, stunning loss. @chadwickboseman was a Black icon, a star among stars who had so much more to give the world. It feels like just the other day I was next to him in Chicago. Now he’s gone, way too soon. Rest in power, King.” — Scottie Pippen, longtime Chicago Bulls star and six-time NBA champion, said on Twitter.

Colin Jost’s first time meeting Scarlett Johansson was straight out of a rom-com.

The now-engaged couple was introduced when Jost, then in his first year at “Saturday Night Live,” wrote a sketch that Johansson, who was hosting the show for the first time, appeared in.

The sketch was a parody of MTV’s “My Super Sweet Sixteen,” writes Jost, 38, in his new memoir, “A Very Punchable Face.”

“She claims that she remembers thinking I was ‘cute’ but I know what I looked like and that’s not the word I would have used. (‘Shaggy’ would have been more generous. ‘Slovenly’ would have been more accurate),” he writes.
“I remember her being beautiful, smart, sweet, and intimidatingly sophisticated,” he continues. “And she had a grace and a smile that I’ve still never seen in any other human.”

The Staten Island native only briefly mentions his fiancée in the tome but does endearingly say, “I’ve met someone I love and who I feel more comfortable with than I ever have before.”

He also saves his final acknowledgment for the “Avengers” actress, writing, “Thank you to Scarlett for being my first reader and for always protecting me from my worst instincts. Remember that Mexican mask I tried to put in our living room? Thanks for stopping me from doing that.”

Last year, Jost and Johansson, 35, announced their engagement after quietly dating for two years. It will be the third marriage for the Oscar-nominated actress. She was previously wed to Ryan Reynolds and French ad exec Romain Duariac, with whom she shares a 5-year-old daughter, Rose.

When Saturday Night Live aired its first remote episode during quarantine in early April, it’s probably safe to say that nobody on the show predicted the star that was about to be born. That star, of course, was the acoustic guitar casually resting on the couch behind Colin Jost during “Weekend Update,” which jumped from obscurity to becoming everyone’s favorite new SNL character within an instant. (Julie Klausner, for example, made it her new Zoom background.) The new SNL star burned too brightly, however, and the guitar’s time in the spotlight ended as quickly as it began when SNL retooled “Weekend Update” with green screens for the next remote episode. The guitar was gone, but never forgotten. And now we have official confirmation that it belongs to Jost’s fiancée, Scarlett Johansson.

Jost briefly addressed the guitar in a new interview with the New York Times that’s out today to promote his memoir, A Very Punchable Face, which will be available on July 14 (it was delayed from its original April release due to the pandemic). “Scarlett had that guitar forever and it was in the quarantine,” Jost said. “She was like, ‘Maybe I should learn how to play,’ and just left it on the couch. It was so perfectly framed there and then everyone pointed it out and I was like, how can I be so dumb? I had no awareness of it at all.”

The SNL co-head writer had previously addressed the guitar on Instagram in April. “My favorite observation from last episode, even among my fellow cast members, was: ‘Great job including the guitar, douchebag,’” he wrote. “This might sound incomprehensible but I did not know it was on the couch, let alone perfectly framed behind me. I have never, nor do I pretend to play, the guitar. Nor do I physically understand how it works. I just Mr Magoo’ed into having a guitar behind me.”

When cinemas reopen and the movie business is able to get back on its feet, the Marvel Cinematic Universe will be ready to propel itself into the long-awaited Phase 4 – taking the superhero saga into an exciting post-Avengers: Endgame world. And the film to kick it all off is Black Widow, Scarlett Johansson’s overdue solo adventure, which will launch the franchise into its future by looking back into its past. Speaking to Empire for the upcoming Big-Screen Preview issue – on sale Thurs 9 July – director Cate Shortland spoke about that interesting dichotomy, hinting that while Black Widow is a last hurrah for Johansson, things are only just beginning for Florence Pugh’s incoming Yelena.

“[Kevin Feige] realised that the audience would expect an origin story so, of course, we went in the opposite direction,” Shortland tells Empire. “And we didn’t know how great Florence Pugh would be. We knew she would be great, but we didn’t know how great. Scarlett is so gracious, like, ‘Oh, I’m handing her the baton.’ So it’s going to propel another female storyline.”

If it sounds, then, that Black Widow will tee up more to come from Pugh’s Yelena, it will also be a chance for the audience to fully process Natasha’s tragic sacrifice on Vormir. “In Endgame, the fans were upset that Natasha did not have a funeral. Whereas Scarlett, when I spoke to her about it, said Natasha wouldn’t have wanted a funeral,” explains Shortland. “She’s too private, and anyway, people don’t really know who she is. So what we did in this film was allow the ending to be the grief the individuals felt, rather than a big public outpouring. I think that’s a fitting ending for her.”
