From /Film:

The severe void of female directors in Hollywood needs to cease, so maybe actresses with the urge like Drew Barrymore and now Scarlett Johansson can be a catalyst. Johansson, a New Yorker, is attached to direct one of the twelve short films that will make up New York, I Love You, a bookend to the recent swooning hit Paris, je t’aime. Like dirty pigeons flocking together to form a feathery heart, the shorts will take a look at “the universal theme of encountering love within the five boroughs of New York City.” And if you haven’t yet confessed your love to a semi-stranger in one of the city’s many dark rooms while under the influence, you’ve got a fun homework assignment for Monday.

This is kind of misleading, as it’s an anthology film, and Johansson will be direction a short section — along with Zach Braff, the Hughes Brothers, Park Chan-wook, Anthony Minghella, Brett Ratner, Jason Reitman, and more.

Eventually you can do this film as a double feature with ‘New York Stories’ (1989). ‘Life Without Zoe,’ anyone? Anyone?

Life Without Zoe” is terrible, possibly the worst thing Coppola’s ever done. Meanwhile, “Life Lessons” is up there as one of the best things Scorsese’s ever done.
