Who doesn't love the movie Once? No one, we tell you! No one! Okay, maybe there are some people, but they don't count! (We kid, we kid.)
Anyway, the director-writer of Once, John Carney, is in the midst of getting a new musical project off the ground called Can a Song Save Your Life? He has joined forces with Judd Apatow to produce the flick and together, they have secured the female lead who is poised to sing many of the film's most important numbers - Scarlett Johansson.
The story follows a young singer-songwriter, played by ScarJo, in New York City where she meets an A&R man who has lost his way. The male lead has yet to be cast but rumored contenders include Jim Carrey and Mark Ruffalo. Shooting will begin in the Big Apple next year.
Nothing we love more than a good movie musical so here's hoping John, Judd and Scarlett do us proud!
