Scarlett Johansson has already bought the rights to several books in anticipation of becoming a film director one day
Scarlett Johansson wants to become a director.
The BAFTA Award-winning actress has already branched out by launching a music career and she now intends to step behind the camera and make her own movies, and she is planning several projects already.
She said: "I want to get into directing and I will at some point. I already bought the rights to some books. I'm in a point at my life where I'm sure of my choices and I'm interested in so many different things. I love art and galleries and music."
Before she eventually takes the plunge and helms a film, Scarlett wants to return to music and has formed an all-girl band entitled The One and Only Singles who are inspired by The Go-Gos.
Scarlett - who released her solo album 'Anywhere I Lay My Head' in 2009 - needs to be diverse as an artist because she doesn't want to limit her life to acting.
She said: "I formed an all-girl band The One and Only Singles, it's something that I've always loved. I had so many different interests growing up, I used to go around Greenwich Village, back when it wasn't popular or cool, and just browse around in libraries and theatres, and then I started acting. The only thing I regret is not having gone to college. The reason I live in New York, far from Hollywood, is because I need to feel a city around me."
