SCARLETT JOHANSSON could dress up as a monster and still look sexy.
So it comes as no surprise to hear the actress has landed the role of an alien seductress in a new flick called Under the Skin.
RYAN REYNOLD`S missus will play Isserley, an extra-terrestrial sent to Earth who captures and eats men.
I`m quietly scared and excited.
A spokesman for production company Film Nation tells the Hollywood Reporter: "Johansson plays an alien on earth, disguised as the perfect aesthetic form of a mesmerising woman.
"She scours remote highways and desolate scenery looking to use her greatest weapon to snare human prey - her voracious sexuality... Taking her point of view throughout, the film presents a unique look at our world through alien eyes."
Film Nation boss Glen Basner adds, "We`re so excited to be working on this arrestingly original movie.
"How could we pass up the chance to work with a visionary director like Jonathan, especially when combined with the intriguing notion of Scarlett Johansson as a ruthless alien seductress?"
Production on the project - which has been adapted for the big screen by Walter Campbell - is set to begin in spring 2011.
Sexy Scarlett already has one villain role under her belt - playing Natasha Romanoff in Iron Man 2.
