Scarlett Johansson is in negotiations to star in the R-rated comedy “Move That Body” for Sony Pictures.
The story follows five friends who rent a beach house in Miami for a bachelorette weekend and accidentally kill a male stripper. The project is described as “The Hangover” meets “Weekend At Bernie’s”.
Sony won a bidding battle for the film’s script by “Broad City” duo Lucia Aniello and Paul W Downs, a script which just made this year’s Black List. Aniello is attached to direct and Downs is set to co-star.
Matt Tolmach and Dave Becky, Aniello and Downs are producing.
