Scarlett Johansson To Star In True Crime Thriller ‘Featherwood’ About Prized FBI Informant Who Infiltrated Neo-Nazi Gang The Aryan Brotherhood; Andrea Arnold Directing & FilmNation Launching Hot EFM Project

The film will chart the remarkable life of the FBI informant who risked her life to expose a neo-Nazi crime syndicate.

EXCLUSIVE: I’m hearing that Oscar nominee and Avengers star Scarlett Johansson( Marriage Story) is set to lead true-crime thriller Featherwood, which is one of the hottest new scripts ahead of next week’s EFM market in Berlin. I gather FilmNation is handling sales on the project, which will be directed by American Honey and Big Little Lies director Andrea Arnold, whose early career is marked by hard-hitting dramas such as Fish Tank and Red Road. Script comes from Ned Benson, writer-director on Searchlight’s upcoming movie The Greatest Hits, and a writer on Marvel’s Johansson starrer Black Widow.
