Scarlett Johansson: Ellie Goulding concert will be directed by star
The 'American Express Unstaged' event will take place on Nov. 11 at Hammerstein Ballroom
Back in 2013, it was reported that Scarlett Johansson would make her feature directorial debut with an adaptation of Truman Capote’s first novel, Summer Crossing. Two years later, as Summer Crossing still remains unmade, Johansson will have a chance to ply her craft behind the camera thanks to American Express.
The credit card company has enlisted Johansson to direct Ellie Goulding’s Nov. 11 concert at Hammerstein Ballroom in New York as part of its American Express Unstaged series.
The concert starts at 8 p.m. ET that evening, and will be streamed via www.amexunstaged.com and the Unstaged app. (Starting now, fans can head to the site to download the app and hear behind-the-scenes stories from Goulding.)
Johansson joins a lengthy list of celebrity directors for American Express Unstaged, including Spike Lee, Bennett Miller, Werner Herzog, Todd Haynes, David Lynch, Johnathan Demme, Steve Buscemi, and Fred Armisen. Goulding’s new album, Delirium, is out Nov. 6.
