It was unfortunate news yesterday to hear of the union between Scarlett Johansson and Ryan Reynolds ending — but beyond the splitting of properties and other assets, we’re left wondering what will happen to their documentary “The Whale”.
ScarJo and Reynolds were both listed as executive producers; with the latter lending the narration. The film tells the incredible true story of Luna, the playful, inquisitive young orca who got separated from his pod and made friends with humans in Vancouver’s Nootka Sound.
LA Times blog “Ministry of Gossip” contacted a producer on the film about its future, and as expected, it appears that a 2011 summer release is still in the works. “We have no reason to believe that their passion and commitment to this project will waver as a result of any changes in their personal lives,” the producer said.
That’s great to hear — because we’re really looking forward to this heartwarming tale; though, as the site points out, the pair may have some awkward moments together during the red carpet premiere/press tour for the film.
