MANHATTAN — Actress Scarlett Johansson is plotting a sequel in her recent stumping for for Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringer.

The "Lost in Translation" and "We Bought a Zoo" stunner is set to host a second fundraiser on behalf of the presumptive mayoral contender April 5, according to an invitation sent out to Stringer’s supporters early Tuesday.

"Scott's passionate vision for a better New York is inspiring. We share a love for this city's diversity and culture," Johansson wrote, applauding Stringer for his work fighting against hydrofracking and advocating on behalf of education reform.

"When Scott is elected mayor, New Yorkers can expect a representative who is focused on making New York a cleaner, greener city, preserving its affordability and the integrity of our varied communities," she wrote.

Johansson — whose twin brother Hunter was once a staffer in the borough president’s office and whose grandmother worked with him in the 1980s to expand Mitchell-Lama housing — officially endorsed Stringer last year.

She cemented her support by hosting a double-feature fundraiser for Stringer last fall that began with a cocktail reception at the Plaza Hotel Residences and continued with a reception at the West Village’s Jane Hotel.

While the location of next month's event was not disclosed in the invitation, Johansson promised next month's fundraiser would be "even bigger and better!"

Tickets for the fundraiser start at $50.
