London: After spending five years developing the project, actress Scarlett Johansson is now fully focused on her directorial debut.

The actress is stepping behind the camera for a movie adaptation of Truman Capote`s ‘Summer Crossing’, which was thought to be lost for more than 50 years but was eventually published in 2005.

"It`s a project I`ve been developing for five or six years. I`m writing it right now with Tristine Skyler, so we`ll see. You have a script and then you take it out and finance it. It`s a big preproduction process, but that`s where my focus is," contactmusic.com quoted her as saying.

Johansson has teamed up with screenwriter Tristine Skyler for the project, but has no plans to star in the film about a teenage girl living in New York after World War II.
