London: Scarlett Johansson says her first directorial project, ‘Summer Crossing’, will be difficult to sell.

The 27-year-old stepped behind the camera for ‘Summer Crossing’, an adaptation of Truman Capote`s first novel.

She admits it does not have obvious appeal because of the tricky setting and subject matter.

"It`s about that first love you have that`s sort of vicious, in a sense. It`s a hard sell because it`s a period film, it takes place in New York, and there`s no room for a big name. We`ll see. Fingers crossed," quoted Johansson as saying.
