Zoe Kravitz in Talks to Star With Scarlett Johansson in ‘Rock That Body’ (EXCLUSIVE)

Zoe Kravitz is in early talks to co-star with Scarlett Johansson in the Sony Pictures comedy “Rock That Body.”

Lucia Aniello (“Broad City”) will direct the film and produce along with Paul W. Downs through their Paulilu banner with Matt Tolmach and Dave Becky. Downs is also attached to star.

The script, which appeared on the 2015 Black List, was penned by Aniello and Downs, and acquired by Sony last summer following a competitive bidding war.

The film centers on five friends who rent a beach house in Miami for a bachelorette weekend and accidentally end up killing a male stripper.

A production start date has not been set yet by the studio, which declined to comment on the casting.

After her breakout role in the Showtime comedy “Californication,” Kravitz appeared in “X-Men: First Class.” She has since had strong supporting roles in the “Divergent” franchise and, most recently, as one of the muses in the Warner Bros. hit “Mad Max: Fury Road.” She recently wrapped filming on the HBO limited series “Little Big Lies” opposite Reese Witherspoon and Nicole Kidman.

She is repped by Paradigm and Untitled Entertainment.
