More About Scarlett Johansson’s Role in Just Cause
In the upcoming adaptation of the original show, Johansson would be seen replacing Connery’s role in the original book. Scarlett Johansson is playing Madison “Madi” Cowart, a reporter who heads to Florida to cover the last few days of an inmate awaiting execution.
He claims innocence and she wants to get to the bottom of it. In the previous adaptation, the character was reconceived as a liberal law professor who is opposed to the death penalty.
Johansson had only two lead acting credits before, in addition to an appearance on Late Night With Conan O’Brien. This will be Scarlett Johansson’s first solo TV show of her very own. Previously, she has only taken on minor movie roles and voice acting in popular animated shows.
What is Just Cause About?
Published in 1992, “Just Cause” centres on Miami reporter Matt Cowart. In the book, everyone around Cowart has doubts about a death row inmate.
The evidence is sketchy and there’s more than just that going on in the background. For all those associating, the series with the popular video game series with the same name, the upcoming limited series is not going to be like that.
So, everyone who is imagining the plot with Johansson jumping rigorously for evidence to unfold and flaunting her running skills can calm their minds as there is not going to be bloodshed like in the video game scenario.
Christy Hall has just been tapped to write and produce “Just Cause”, which Johansson will executive produce under her These Pictures banner.
