Scarlett Johansson headlines the raunchy comedy Rock That Body, which has commenced shooting in New York.

The cast includes Ilana Glazer, Kate McKinnon, Jillian Bell, Zoe Kravitz and Demi Moore. Modern Family's Ty Burrell is a late addition to the cast. 

Rock That Body follows a group of five friends who rent a beach house in Miami for a wild bachelorette party that goes off the rails. The film is directed by Lucia Aniello from a script she wrote with her writing partner Paul W. Downs.

The script for Rock That Body appeared on the Black List in 2015 (as 'Move that body'). Sony picked up the project last year in an aggressive bidding war. Both Aniello and Downs will produce the film through their Paulilu banner. Matt Tolmach and Dave Becky will also produce.
