Watch Matthew McConaughey and Scarlett Johansson in Martin Scorsese’s Charming Short Film
Although he’s been busy putting the finishing touches on ‘The Wolf of Wall Street‘ for its upcoming Christmas release, Martin Scorsese still managed to find time to throw together this charming short film for fashion house Dolce and Gabbana. The black and white short, which stars Matthew McConaughey and Scarlett Johansson, promotes the brand’s The One fragrance line, but if anything, it just makes us want to see Scarlett Johansson in a Scorsese film.
We’re really into Scorsese’s short for Dolce and Gabbana, which takes on a dreamy, meta-like quality as McConaughey picks Johansson up and drives her through a film set, cleverly flirting and making mention of “roles” and “acting.” There’s definitely some sparkling chemistry between the two stars, and although it’s a self-aware play on acting and commercials, there’s a hint of real romance between the two. The ad is smart and features the kind of snappy dialogue and charisma we’ve come to expect from the director.
McConaughey, who also stars in Scorsese’s ‘Wolf of Wall Street,’ seems to be just about everywhere right now — as is Johansson, who appears next in ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier,’ reprising the role of Black Widow. But we kind of wish Scorsese would cast her in a film already. She seems to fit right into his world beautifully.
