Pitch Perfect and Bridesmaids star Rebel Wilson has sold a comedy pitch to Universal Pictures, which Deadline reports she will write, produce, and star in, based on her own original idea. Sadly there’s no news on exactly what that idea is.
Peter Cramer, Universal’s co-president of production, commented, “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 also recently starred in the comedy Bachelorette, and will next be seen in Struck by Lightning and Michael Bay’s Pain and Gain. The incredibly busy Wilson is also writing and starring in the ABC pilot Super Fun Night and Conan O’Brien’s Conaco.
