All you fan-fic writers out there on the internet who have been waiting for a movie that pairs Ty Burrell and Scarlett Johansson can take a break now, because Hollywood has finally answered your prayers. Burrell has just been cast in the blue comedy Rock That Body from Broad City executive producer Lucia Aniello. The script, from Aniello and her writing partner, Paul W. Downs, got a coveted Black List designation in 2015, and Sony snagged the rights to it in what Variety characterizes as “an aggressive bidding war.” (Despite having a name that evokes being placed in exile as well as the dark time in Hollywood when alleged communists were being expunged from the entertainment industry, the Black List is actually an annual collection of unproduced scripts that film-studio executives have deemed the most desirable.) The sought-after property focuses on five friends looking to throw down for a bachelorette party and end up renting a beach house in Miami for the occasion. In addition to Johansson and Burrell, it’s also got Kate McKinnon, Jillian Bell, Ilana Glazer, Zoe Kravitz, and Demi Moore onboard to stir up plenty of WTF in this “raunchy comedy.” It seems like an outside chance, but the Modern Family actor could make a great washed-up go-go boy bumming around Miami Beach. Here’s hoping!
