Scarlett Johansson is reportedly in talks to star in Sony’s new R-rated comedy Move That Body. Sony secured the script written by Lucia Aniello and Paul W. Downs, back in June after a fiery bidding battle. Aniello is known for directing multiple episodes of Comedy Central favourite Broad City, in which Downs plays the role of Trey. The logline is as follows; “Five friends rent a beach house in Miami for a bachelorette weekend and accidentally kill a male stripper”.
The script has been described as The Hangover meets Weekend At Bernie’s. Not much else is known. But so far, the film is set for success – Johansson and Aniello collaborating on a film? That can only result in magic. Johansson can next be seen in the Coen brothers’ showbiz comedy Hail, Caesar! which sees her starring alongside George Clooney and Channing Tatum, and Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War where she will reprise her role as Black Widow.
