Scarlett Johansson, Jennifer Lawrence Plan Dueling Zelda Fitzgerald Films.


Scarlett Johansson and Jennifer Lawrence will be thrown into an involuntary comparison battle in the near future, as the two stars are each slated to portray the late Zelda Fitzgerald in dueling biopics.

The Jazz Age icon and wife of author F. Scott Fitzgerald died nearly 70 years ago in a fire at a North Carolina hospital, but her life has been at the forefront of Hollywood's inspiration as of late.

Jennifer Lawrence and Scarlett Johansson, respectively, are on the fast track to being first at the same time that Amazon has its own series, Z: The Beginning of Everything, with Christina Ricci playing the socialite who was once dubbed by her husband as "the first American Flapper."
