Scarlett Johansson’s ‘Rock That Body’ to Open Against ‘Transformers: The Last Knight’

Sony’s comedy “Rock That Body” starring Scarlett Johansson is scheduled for release on June 23, 2017 when it will open against Paramount’s “Transformers: The Last Knight.”

Rock That Body” is a raunchy comedy that follows a group of five friends who rent a beach house in Miami for a wild bachelorette party that goes off the rails. Jillian Bell, Kate McKinnon and Ilana Glazer also star.

The film is directed by Lucia Aniello from a script she wrote with her writing partner Paul W. Downs. The two are also writers on Comedy Central’s “Broad City” and co-created the mini-series “Time Traveling Bong” along with Glazer. They are also currently involved in a project they describe as “a female spinoff of the ’21 Jump Street’ franchise.”

The script for “Rock That Body” appeared on the Black List in 2015. 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.

Johansson’s 2014 action movie “Lucy” was a surprise hit with over $450 million in worldwide grosses.

The four previous “Transformers” films, based on the Hasbro toy line, have grossed over $3.7 billion worldwide for Paramount. Lorenzo di Bonaventura, Don Murphy and Tom DeSanto will produce the latest iteration.
