Comediennes Kate McKinnon, Jillian Bell and Ilana Glazer are joining Scarlett Johansson in the Sony comedy Rock That Body.

The project, whose title is tentative and was previously named Move That Body, already has Zoe Kravitz on the call sheet.

Paul W. Downs and Lucia Aniello, who work with Glazer on the cult favorite comedy television series Broad City, co-wrote the film. Downs also will star, with Aniello directing.

The script tells of five friends who get a beach house in Miami for a wild bachelorette weekend that goes completely off the rails. The all-female comedy is intended to be R-rated and a complement to the studio’s all-female reboot of Ghostbusters.

Matt Tolmach and Dave Becky are producing.  Downs and Aniello also will produce through their Paulilu banner, with principal photography set to begin in late August.

Jonathan Kadin is overseeing for the studio.

McKinnon is the Saturday Night Live castmember whose film career is taking off. She stars in this summer’s Ghostbusters and is now filming the ensemble DreamWorks comedy Office Christmas Party.

Workaholics star Bell is also in Office Christmas Party and recently wrapped First Fight for New Line. The actress also had a key role in 22 Jump Street.

Glazer has been twice nominated for Critics' Choice Awards for her work on Broad City, which she created with Abbi Jacobson.
