After Carey Mulligan turned down the role, a representative for Johansson revealed to the Huffington Post that the actress has no involvement in the project and she has never been asked to do this film.
The rep said that the 28-year-old hasn’t been approached about it nor seen a script and it is a total fabrication.
Meanwhile, Jessica Chastain, who was rumoured for the part, has also shot down that discussion as pure speculation.
