ScarJo to Be Maggie the Cat?

Apparently producers did not heed my warning! Despite the ill-received revival of A Streetcar Named Desire, reports are swirling that another Tennessee Williams play, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, will be revived starring Scarlett Johansson as Maggie. If this production does happen, this will be the THIRD revival of Cat on a Hot Tin Roof in ten years. There were revivals in 2003, starring Ashley Judd, and 2008, starring Terrence Howard, Aniki Noni Rose, James Earl Jones, and Phylicia Rashad, among others. Are we really in need for another Cat revival? And who would you like to see play Brick opposite Johansson? My vote is for Jake Gyllenhaal.
