In case you missed the memo (and I'm not saying you did), Scarlett Johansson is one of Hollywood's most in-demand actresses. But for someone who just kicked butt (literally) as the superheroic Black Widow in this summer's biggest hit, "Iron Man 2," she's got a pretty wide-open schedule.

So it's no wonder that with some high-profile projects currently looking to cast their leading ladies, ScarJo's name has popped up numerous times today alone.

This morning, Deadline reported she was one of a gaggle of gorgeous Hollywood A-listers being considered for the pivotal role of Daisy Buchanan in ,a href="http://moviesblog.mtv.com/tag/baz-luhrmann/">Baz Luhrmann's "The Great Gatsby" adaptation, which reportedly has Leonardo DiCaprio in line for the Jay Gatsby role and Tobey Maguire tentatively on tap to play narrator Nick Carraway. »
