Scarlett Johansson is in final talks to star in the upcoming Fox Searchlight film JoJo Rabbit. JoJo Rabbit is the story of a young boy in Hitler’s army who learns that his mom is hiding a Jewish boy in the house.
The project is Taika Waititi’s follow-up to "Thor: Ragnarok", and centers on a young boy in Hitler's army who finds out that his mother, to be played by Johansson, is hiding a Jewish boy in their home.
While Waititi has been offered several films following the success of "Thor: Ragnarok", the director made it clear that "Jojo Rabbit" would be his next film. While Waititi has been busy filming his "What We Do in the Shadows" pilot, he was able to meet with Johansson prior to that production to discuss the role.
