Actresses join Scarlett Johansson and Zoe Kravitz in cast of 'all-female Hangover'
The movie billed as the “all-female Hangover” has finalised its five leads, with actresses Kate McKinnon, Jillian Bell and Ilana Glazer joining the cast.
Scarlett Johansson and Zoe Kravitz were already on board the project, which is due to be R-rated, and is tentatively titled Rock That Body.
Not much is known about the film at present, though the story reportedly follows five friends on a wild bachelorette weekend at a Miami beach house, during which events spiral out of control. Sony hasn’t released a full cast list yet, but it’s probably safe to assume that Johansson, Kravitz, McKinnon, Bell and Glazer are playing the five leads, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
Kate McKinnon is a Saturday Night Live alumna who’ll be appearing in the anticipated Ghostbusters reboot this summer, while Jillian Bell was the breakout star of 22 Jump Street. Ilana Glazer (pictured at the top on the right) is one of the stars of the millennial comedy Broad City, a show which is also providing writing talent to the new movie project in the form of Paul W Downs and Lucia Aniello. Downs is also tipped to act in Rock That Body, while Aniello is due to direct.
Filming on Rock That Body is slated to start in late August.
