Disney Cutting Ties With Scarlett Johansson, “Tower of Terror” Film Canceled

Following Scarlett Johansson’s lawsuit against Disney over Black Widow‘s release on Disney+, Disney is cutting all ties with the actress and canceling projects involving her.

According to Giant Freakin Robot, this includes the previously announced Tower of Terror film. Johansson was set to produce and star in the movie.

This would not have been the first attempt at a Tower of Terror film adaptation. As part of The Wonderful World of Disney, a TV movie called “Tower of Terror” starring Steve Guttenberg and Kirsten Dunst aired in 1997. Last December, screenwriter John August shared details and illustrations from his pitch for a new film that he presented in 2015. No details about Johansson’s version of the film had been made available.

How do you feel about the cancelation of the Tower of Terror film? Let us know in the comments.

I’m glad because I believe that if they had made the movie they would have taken away the twilight zone part of the ride and now they will have to keep it.

They bowed down to all the men’s demands over the years, why not hers?

Pretty childish response by Disney. Alan Horn has got to go, IMO.

Way to ruin a relationship with a great actress that gave you a decade of content.

It’s a shame that this is all about $$$. Disney should go the right thing and pay her what she’s owed and move forward with worthwhile projects. A good ToT storyline & film will gain them back any money they would pay out to settle this issue. Again, the fans suffer by not getting good stories.
