Scarlett Johansson gets 'Under the Skin' filming sci-fi movie

Scarlett Johansson is currently filming scenes for the sci-fi flick "Under the Skin" in Glasgow, Scotland, and was photographed on Tuesday sporting a brunette 'do and a fur coat. In one scene, the actress is seen falling face first in the street (below).

The film, being directed by Jonathan Glazer ("Sexy Beast"), is based on the 2000 book by Michael Faber about an alien in human form who comes to Earth to pick up hitchhikers to be used as meat.

Indiewire.com reports that the filming taking place is part of reshoots, since the film was shot last year.

Maybe it's a stretch, but when we hear sci-fi and see a lovely brunette in a fur coat, we can't help but picture Sean Young's Rachael in the classic "Blade Runner."

But Johansson told Variety earlier this year that "Under the Skin" is deeper than it appears on the surface. "OK, yes I do play an alien who is wearing my own skin. But it's actually not a science-fiction film; it's sort of a film that asks existential questions and much more complex than the logline."
