Scarlett Johansson to 'Move That Body' in R-Rated Comedy from 'Broad City' Writers
Earlier this week, film industry executives shared their top unproduced scripts on the 11th annual Black List. One of them was a very strange-sounding movie about Michael Jackson's monkey, and another was an R-rated party comedy from Broad City writers Paul W. Downs and Lucia Aniello. The latter is now being considered as a Scarlett Johansson movie.

Deadline reports that Johansson is in talks to star in Downs and Aniello's Move That Body. The film is being produced by Sony Pictures through their Paulilu banner.

Here's the film's synopsis as it's explained on the Black List:

Five friends rent a beach house in Miami for a bachelorette weekend and accidentally kill a male stripper.

The film is being produced by Matt Tolmach and Dave Becky. Tolmach previously produced Step BrothersPineapple Express and Superbad, among others.

Aniello is also set to direct Move That Body, with Downs to appear onscreen in a supporting role.
