The Black Dahlia
will be poorly filmed in March of next year by overrated auteur Brian De Palma
. Fatuously good-looking Josh Hartnett
and Scarlett Johansson
will weakly star in this vehicle. The production designer is Dante Ferretti
who production designed most of the great Scor-sleazy movies, so it will look very good and it will be shot by the esteemed Vilmos Zsigmond
