Composer Andrew Lloyd-Webber is mounting a reality TV talent search to find an unknown to star in his forthcoming stage revival of The Sound Of Music, after Scarlett Johansson turned down the part.

Lord Lloyd-Webber decided to approach BBC TV bosses after Johansson confirmed she would not be taking the lead role of Maria, made famous by Julie Andrews in the 1965 movie version of the musical.

And Lloyd-Webber hopes the reality TV search will find a suitable replacement for his production, which will be staged in London's West End.

Dan Ian, the stage show's co-producer, says, "We think this could be an interesting way of casting someone who is not known yet but who has enormous talent and we hope it will break new ground."
