Scarlett Johansson is set to make her Broadway debut as a 17-year-old girl.
The 24-year-old actress will appear alongside Liev Schreiber in an adaptation of Arthur Miller's 'A View from the Bridge' which will run in New York's famous theatre district.
Scarlett will play the role of Catherine, Liev's character Eddie's niece.
In the play, longshoreman Eddie becomes increasingly obsessed with orphaned Catherine, who he is raising, but she ends up falling for another man sending him on a path of self-destruction.
Scarlett - who is widely considered to be one of Hollywood's most beautiful actresses - recently revealed the sex appeal she brings to her roles comes naturally.
The 'Iron Man 2' star said: "I don't think about being sexy or being seductive. What you don't want to see is somebody trying to be sexy. That's the most unsexy thing."
Despite having confidence in her natural sexuality, Scarlett is still shocked every time she lands a role.
She added: "It always shocks me, when I get hired for anything. As soon as one project ends you never think you will get the chance again."
'Scream' star Liev is an accomplished stage actor and won a Tony Award for his performance in a 2005 revival of the play 'Glengarry Glen Ross'.
