SCARLETT Johansson has been cast in ‘The Psychopath Test’.
The 30-year-old actress has agreed a deal to star in the film adaptation of Jon Ronson’s book of same name.
Brian Grazer and Roach will produce the project, according to Deadline, which also claims Erica Huggins and Jennifer Perini will act as executive producers.
The original synopsis of the book explains, “What if society wasn’t fundamentally rational, but was motivated by insanity? This thought sets Jon Ronson on an utterly compelling adventure into the world of madness.
“Along the way, Jon meets psychopaths, those whose lives have been touched by madness and those whose job it is to diagnose it, including the influential psychologist who developed the Psychopath Test, from whom Jon learns the art of psychopath-spotting.
“A skill which seemingly reveals that madness could indeed be at the heart of everything…” BANG!
