London: If rumours are to be believed, then Scarlett Johansson is heading back to Broadway to romance Jon Hamm and John Krasinski in a new production of ‘The Philadelphia Story’.

According to Variety, the three actors all appeared at a recent reading of the play in New York, hosted by Drama Desk Award-winning director Alex Timbers.

The report has sparked speculation the trio will take on the story in a new production of the play, which was made famous by the 1940 Oscar-winning film adaptation starring Katharine Hepburn as a scheming socialite opposite Cary Grant and James Stewart, reports a newspaper.

Johansson bagged a coveted Tony Award last year (10) for her Broadway debut in ‘A View From The Bridge’.
