‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ star Scarlett Johansson is in final talks for ‘Move That Body,’ an R-rated comedy that has ‘Broad City’ writer/director Lucia Aniello at the helm.
Plot details are under wraps, but the spec script by Aniello and Paul W. Downs has been described as a mash-up of ‘Weekend at Bernie’s’ and ‘The Hangover.’ Downs is set to co-star.
Aniello and Paul W. Downs are producing the project through their Paulilu shingle, alongside Matt Tolmach (‘The Other Guys,’ ‘Zombieland,’ ‘Step Brothers’) and Dave Becky (‘Master of None,’ ‘Broad City’).
Johansson will next be seen in the Coen brothers’ star-studded romp HAIL, CAESAR! when it opens in Irish cinemas February 26, 2016.
