A little friendly competition never hurt anyone, right?
Following news that Jennifer Lawrence is set to portray literary icon Zelda Fitzgerald in a Ron Howard directed film, Scarlett Johansson came out with her own Zelda news.

Per the Hollywood Reporter, Scarlett will take on the complicated figure in her own project which will be financed by Millennial Films. While there's not many additional details about S.J.'s plans, the report did confirm the company will have access to recently unearthed transcripts from where Fitzgerald was institutionalized in the later years of her life. Apparently the docs confirm rampant theories that her famous husband Scott F. Fitzgerald stole many of her ideas for his own benefit.
Umm… talk about an edge, much?! We imagine Scarlett has way more material to work with!
Speaking on the exciting film, Millennium president Mark Gill explained:
"It was the height of the Jazz Age, so you have all of that glamor and sophistication and living large. But you also have the massive drama of fly high, crash hard. She was massively ahead of her time, and she took a beating for it. He stole her ideas and put them in his books. The marriage was a co-dependency from hell with a Jazz Age soundtrack."
Sounds like a lot of drama!
So, who would you rather see play Zelda?
