Scarlett Johansson comments on the lackluster indie film marketplace
Hollywoodnews.com: Scarlett Johansson finds that the indie film marketplace has been shrinking.
While she would love to act in more indie films, it’s a challenge since big-name talent is required to tub-thump the film, particularly in an age when studios have unplugged their classic film divisions, i.e. Warner Bros. and Paramount.
“I think it’s just incredibly difficult. There are very, very few actors, anyway out there that can champion small movies and interesting ideas. You know, because the studio looks at that and the script and says, ‘how are we going to market this?’” Johansson tells femalefirst.co.uk.
“Before they even green light it they are so curious as to how they are going to market it, how they are going to sell it as a product. It’s very unfortunate that it is that way, that there is a lack of room to make these mid-level movies,” she added.
“There’s really not that many people championing that. I think it has to do with our sort of pop-culture, what the audience demands,” she said.
