Scarlett Johansson revealed some information about the film during a press event for the upcoming film The Avengers: Age of Ultron. She told Collider that:
“It will be shooting the beginning of next year, so I think we start production January or February and it’s me and Rupert [Sanders]; and that’s all I know.”
