Scarlett Johansson is set to star in Featherwood, a true-crime thriller about Carol Blevins, an FBI informant who brought down members of the Aryan Brotherhood of Texas.
Johansson will portray Carol Blevins, a heroin addict and ‘featherwood’ (aka. the property of a gang member) who became one of the FBI’s most important informants.
She was key to an epic six-year investigation into the murderous, neo-Nazi crime and drug syndicate known as the Aryan Brotherhood Of Texas.
Blevins lived with the gang, memorising details, helping to ultimately convict thirteen members of the group. Her journey left her with significant physical and mental scars, and is under constant threat of reprisal by the ABT.
The film is based on Scott Farwell‘s six-part Dallas Morning News article recounting Carol’s experience living with the group.
Scarlett is also attached to Featherwood as a producer. Big Little Lies filmmaker Andrea Arnold will direct the movie.
