Scarlett Johansson VogueOboy! Lots more pictures of ScarJo to be featured on The Beat as she’s just been cast in Frank Miller’s Spirit Movie as a femme fatale named Silk N. Floss.:

For “The Spirit,” Miller’s adaptation of the classic Eisner film noir comic strip series, Johansson is in final negotiations to play a dangerous beauty named Silk N. Floss. Eisner’s strip was known for its women with dangerous curves, and Miller is intent on keeping that tradition. Floss is a sexy and intelligent secretary with a vindictive instinct, making her the perfect accomplice to the Octopus (Samuel L. Jackson), an evil mastermind.

Gabriel Macht is playing the title character, a detective who fakes his own death in order to fight crime in Central City as the masked man known as the Spirit. Production is scheduled to start in October, with the film scheduled to be released domestically by Lionsgate in 2009.

We’re more excited than a panda in a lawn furniture showroom to hear this news, and to show it, we’ve posted TWO pictures of the glamourous starlet, who perviously co-starred in GHOST WORLD to earn her nerd stripes.
