Who Doesn't...

(1) Wanna direct, (2) Love New York, and (3) Believe that Scarlett Johansson is a native New Yorker. Well, most people would love to call the shots on a movie set and some have an undying love for the city, but it seems that Johansson’s got the trifecta down and will be directing Woody Allen’s next film, New York, J’Taime. Described as a cinematic wonderland [my own dubious speculation] exploring “the universal themes of encountering love within the five boroughs of New York City,” the new film has already started clogging sidewalks with onlookers and given the newly-minted director opportunities to sport a beret. Along Johansson, Woody Allen and Kevin Bacon, both long-time denizens of our fair streets, are set to appear and further reduce every New Yorker’s degree of separation to three.
