  • Johansson: Coming to St. Louis?
Last week it was Vince Vaughn. This week, it's Scarlett Johansson. The curvaceous actress is the latest cast member to sign on for the upcoming film Old St. Louis.

The movie, directed by David O. Russell (Three Kings, I Heart Hucakbees), revolves around a traveling salesman (Vaughn) who reconnects with his teenage daughter, to be played by Chloe Moretz. Johansson will reportedly play Vaughn's secretary and love interest.

No word yet on whether the film will actually be shot in St. Louis. Though let's keep our fingers crossed. Johansson would be the steamiest starlet (in one man's humble opinion) to walk our streets since Jessica Alba was here back in 2006 to film Meet Bill.
