SCARLETT JOHANSSON PLANNING WEST END MOVE

Friday, January 18, 2013 - Scarlett Johansson wants her next theater role to be a turn on the West End

stage.

The Lost in Translation star won a Tony Award for her Broadway debut in Arthur Miller's A View From the Bridge, and she won rave reviews for her current turn in Cat On A Hot Tin Roof when the play opened in New York on Thursday night (17Jan13).

Johansson has now confirmed that when her turn as Maggie the Cat comes to

an end, she wants to continue her theater career in London.

She says, "I would love to do something on the West End. After my run with this, I will be putting Maggie the Cat to bed - doing any longer than our

run right now would be maddening. But I would love to do theater in the West End... I love London and have spent tons of time there. I'd like that to

be next."

Johansson adds of her current theater role: "It's quite liberating to be back on stage. What seems to be on the page hugely challenging really comes

to life when you suddenly have a place to put on the words. It's very thrilling."
