Scarlett Johansson is in talks to star in an R-rated comedy called Move That Body, Deadline reports. The script, which landed on the Black List (the industry’s favorite yet-to-be-produced screenplays) this year, is written by two Broad City alums: Paul W. Downs, of Body by Trey Dot Biz; and Lucia Aniello, a director and executive producer on the show. Move That Body is a classic tale of five friends renting a beach house in Miami for a bachelorette party only to accidentally kill a male stripper. Aniello is slated to direct with Downs set to co-star, where he’ll no doubt be studying up on Bernie’s dance moves.
