Pitch Perfect star Rebel Wilson has sold a comedy pitch to Universal Pictures. The actress will write, produce, and star in the untitled project, based on her own original idea. Here's what Peter Cramer, Universal's co-president of production, had to say about working with the multi-hyphenate.
"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."
Rebel Wilson also recently starred in the comedy Bachelorette, and will next be seen in Struck by Lightning and Michael Bay's Pain and Gain. She is also writing and starring in the ABC pilot Super Fun Night from Warner Bros. Television and Conan O'Brien's Conaco.
