Demi Moore Will 'Rock That Body', Sarah Paulson Rounds Out 'Ocean's 8', Vincent D'Onofrio Has A 'Death Wish'
Scarlett Johansson, Kate McKinnon, Jillian Bell, Ilana Glazer and Zoe Kravitz will be joined in the R-rated comedy Rock that Body by Demi Moore. This will be her first major theatrical film since Margin Call in 2011, although she's been keeping busy on smaller projects. The raunchy story centers on five friends who rent a beach house in Miami for a wild bachelorette weekend, only to have things go completely off the rails. There may also be the hiding a dead body involved, if we're to believe the previous title of Move that Body. Broad City's Paul W. Downs and Lucia Aniello wrote co-wrote the Black List approved screenplay for Aniello to direct. Filming has already begun in hopes of having it ready for a June 23rd 2017 release. [Deadline]
The eighth member of the Ocean's Eight cast may have been found as Sarah Paulson (Carol, American Horror Story) is in talks to join Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Rihanna, Anne Hathaway, Helena Bonham Carter, Mindy Kaling and Awkwafina. Gary Ross (The Hunger Games) is directing the spinoff of Ocean's Eleven, which finds Bullock as the sister to George Clooney's character. She and a new team of thieves plan to steal a valuable necklace from the Met Ball in order to frame a villainous gallery owner.
The Eli Roth-directed, Bruce Willis-starring Death Wish remake has added Vincent D'Onofrio and Dean Norris (Breaking Bad) to the lineup. The original 1974 film is a Charles Bronson revenge classic, and centers on a regular New York guy who becomes a vigilante after the murder of his wife. Multiple versions of the script have been written already but the latest draft comes from Scott Alexander & Larry Karaszewski (Big Eyes) who will be sticking closer to the source novel by Brian Garfield.
