Scarlett Johansson is set to star in and produce science-fiction drama ‘Bride’ for Apple and A24 from director Sebastián Lelio.
The film will follow a woman created to be an ideal wife — the singular obsession of a brilliant entrepreneur. When she rejects her creator, she’s forced to flee her confined existence, confronting a world that sees her as a monster. While on the run, she finds her true identity, her surprising power and the strength to remake herself as her own creation.
Lauren Schuker Blum (“Orange Is the New Black”), Rebecca Angelo (“Wolfman”) and Lelio will pen the script. Jonathan Lia will produce alongside Johansson for These Pictures while Keenan Flynn will co-produce.
