Scoop (2006) Poster

(2006)

Trivia

The lead character (originally an adult journalist) was tailored specifically to Johansson, whom Woody Allen observed as having an unused "funny" quality about her while working on the previous film Match Point (2005).
The film is the second of Woody Allen's films (the other being Hollywood Ending (2002)) not to have a UK theatrical release.
Scoop is one of three 2006 films to feature both the topic of magic and magicians as main characters. The other two are The Illusionist (2006) and The Prestige (2006), the second of which also stars Hugh Jackman and Scarlett Johansson. Woody Allen was tutored magic and illusion for the movie by Scott Penrose.
Sondra Pransky (Scarlett Johansson) studies journalism at the fictional Adair University. This is the same university which Harry Block (Woody Allen) was expelled from and subsequently honoured by in Deconstructing Harry (1997). It would later be mentioned as the university where Abe Lucas (Joaquin Phoenix) previously taught philosophy in Irrational Man (2015).
