Disney Reportedly to Cut Ties With Scarlett Johansson and TOWER OF TERROR Movie Is Cancelled.
Recently, we reported that Scarlett Johansson had sued Disney over the release of Black Widow, claiming a breach of contract when they ended up releasing the film on Disney+. This has clearly caused a rift in the relationship between Johansson and the studio.
Disney dismissed the suit saying that there’s no merit to Johansson’s claims, but her agents and attorneys believe otherwise, and they’re pressing forward.
According to a new report from Giant Freakin Robot, Disney is cutting all ties with Johansson and canceling the film projects that they’ve set up with her. One of those projects being Disney’s Tower of Terror film that was announced a few weeks ago. She was set to star in and produce the movie.
Tower of Terror was also being developed by Toy Story 4 director and Inside Out scribe Josh Cooley. Apparently, there were other projects as well that were quietly in the works for Johansson as Disney as well. But if this news is true, but don’t expect to see the light of day.
No surprise here, whoever was in the right, they were clearly at odds, and given Disney’s response, the future between Johansson and the studio was all but ending.
