Scarlett Johansson has a pretty full plate these days; between her status as new mom and projects like Hail Caesar!, The Jungle Book, and the next Captain America movie, Johansson is one busy lady. But there's one project on her schedule that has been in the works for six years, and fans are eager to know when they can expect it.

Scarlett is working with Rupert Sanders (Snow White And The Huntsman) on the film Ghost In The Shell, which is based on a popular anime series from Japan. The actress confirmed her role in the movie last year, saying in an interview that filming would begin in January. However, according to IMDB fans will have to wait until at least 2017 to see it.

Those who can't wait that long might be in for a treat, though; according to Anime News Network, the Tokyo Geijutsu Gekijō Playhouse will be putting on a live stage version of the story in November. The production will reportedly feature 3-D videos alongside the actors to enhance the performance; you can see photos of some of the actors in costume here.

Scarlett Johansson has been in headlines this week after the trailer for Hail Caesar! dropped, giving Coen brothers fans a peek at the star-studded film, which includes Johansson, Dolph Lundgren, Josh Brolin, and George Clooney. According to The Guardian, the movie is "set in Hollywood during the latter days of the golden age. It revolves around a fixer, played by Brolin, who must find the kidnapped star of a big new movie, also called Hail, Caesar!"

Scarlett recently celebrated her one-year anniversary with husband Romain Dauriac, and while the happy couple have been busy with parenthood, they still have the occasional argument. Johansson says that even though she's learning French, she sticks with her native tongue when it's time to make a point.

"When you're in a relationship with somebody you want to speak whatever language is easiest to get your ideas out as quickly as possible, so you can argue your point," Scarlett said.
