"Rebel has become one of the hottest comedic actresses working today and we are thrilled to continue our relationship with her following her breakout performance in Bridesmaids and her scene stealing 'Fat Amy' in Pitch Perfect. We are especially excited that this project will feature her amazing talents both in front of and behind the camera."
