According to Variety, filming on the $5m (£3.3m) indie picture kicked off last weekend. The movie is based on Ayn Rand's 1957 philosophical novel.
The film is reportedly being split into two parts, with Atlas Shrugged Part One now shooting and production on a second instalment to happen after the first is completed.
Johansson is playing Galt, Taylor Schilling has signed to play the lead role of Dagny Taggart and Grant Bowler is portraying Henry Reardon.
Nick Cassavetes, Michael Lerner and Matthew Marsdan have also agreed to co-star in the project.
