Scarlett Johansson & Jennifer Lawrence Both Set for Separate Zelda Fitzgerald Biopics

Scarlett Johansson & Jennifer Lawrence Both Set for Separate Zelda Fitzgerald Biopics

Scarlett Johansson is developing a film to star as Jazz Age icon Zelda Fitzgerald with Millennium Films, THR reports.

The 31-year-old actress’ project in development is titled The Beautiful and the Damned, a play on F. Scott Fitzgerald‘s “The Beautiful and Damned.” Zelda was married to the famous writer and was considered his muse.

Scarlett and Millennium Films have the cooperation of the Fitzgerald estate as well.

It was announced last week that Jennifer Lawrence has a Zelda biopic in the works with the help of director Ron Howard. There is no word yet which production will be ready to go into production first, or which will hit theaters sooner.

    I bet the Scarlett Johansson’s (having a good actress and the support of Fitzgelard’s state) will be better but Lawrence’s will take all the awards.

    I’m Team ScarJo but J-Law is an awards favorite for some reason.

    wtfffff why do they have white women playing Ella Fitzgerald??????? this is so fucking wrong smh hollywood is a fucking mess.

  • Anna

    They’re playing Zelda Fitzgerald, not Ella Fitzgerald. Zelda Fitzgerald was a white woman from Alabama.

  • Juan Cocco

    Calm down. I never came at you. You’re confused, I was trying to help you understand that these two are different women and you’re confusing one with another. One is white, named Zelda Fitzgerald, the other is black, named Ella Fitzgerald. Both Scarlett and Lawrence are playing Zelda NOT Ella, who is white. If you’re still confusing, just use google. Also, learn some manners and the difference between someone insulting you and trying to help you understand something.

    Scarlet is more beautiful and much better actress. Just cant get it why is this Lawrence such a Hollywood favorite.
