Mark Ruffalo must have enjoyed working with Scarlett Johansson on The Avengers as they’re set to team up again for Can a Song Save Your Life?, which is a return to the music-film arena for Once director John Carney.
Variety says that in the film, Gretta (Johansson) is seduced by dreams of making it in the big city, and so she and her long-time boyfriend move to New York to pursue their passion for music. Soon after she’s heartbroken when he dumps her for the fame and fortune of a big solo contract.
However, her world takes a turn for the better when a down-on-his-luck record producer (Ruffalo) stumbles upon her singing in a local bar and is immediately captivated by her raw talent and inspiring authenticity.
It’s a chance for Johansson to show off her singing skills, but gets a bit more cred with the presence of Mark Ruffalo. The plan is to begin shooting in June.
