Sony Pictures is negotiating with Scarlett Johansson to star in the R-rated comedy “Move That Body.”
The script comes from Broad City writers Lucia Aniello and Paul W. Downs, with Downs also co-starring and Aniello in the director's chair. The movie centers around five friends who rent a Miami beach house for a bachelorette weekend and accidentally kill a male stripper.
Producers are Lucia Aniello and Paul W. Downs through their Paulilu banner with Matt Tolmach and Dave Becky.
Sony acquired the script by Aniello and Downs in a bidding war this past summer.
Move That Body earned a spot on the 2015 Black List — the annual roundup of Hollywood's best unproduced screenplays — which was announced yesterday.
