Scarlett Johansson: Directorial Debut with 'Summer Crossing'!

Scarlett Johansson is set to make her directorial debut with Summer Crossing, an adaptation of Truman Capote‘s novel of the same name, according to Deadline.

Here’s a synopsis of the flick: a 17-year-old debutant opts out of her parents’ Parisian travels to foster a romance with a Jewish valet parking attendant in the middle of a 1945 summer NYC heat wave.

“Several years ago I began working alongside the Capote estate and writer Tristine Skylar to adapt Summer Crossing, an inspired early work of Truman’s which has long captured my heart,” the 28-year-old actress said in a statement. “Being able to bring this story to the screen as my full length directorial debut is a life dream and deep privilege.”
