Congratulations to Rebel Wilson for selling a movie pitch to Hollywood! The Hollywood Reporter says that Rebel will be teaming up with Universal, which makes a lot of sense since they helped produce two of her recent comedies Pitch Perfect and Bridesmaids. In fact, it was her scene-stealing role as Kristen Wiig‘s unbelievable roommate that got her a much bigger part in Bachelorette, and she was the first one cast in Pitch Perfect.
But what’s most impressive about this is that we know nothing about the comedy Rebel will be making. At least when we heard the news about Mindy Kaling‘s new rom-com yesterday, we knew she had finished the script and had a synopsis and everything. According to THR, Rebel pitched an idea, and the studio loved it. Now, we don’t doubt that because Rebel is just fabulous. It’s tough to say which we love more, the great quotes that come out of her print interviews, or when she winds up rapping with Ellen DeGeneres like it ain’t no thang. But we’re incredibly curious as to what her movie is actually about!
Rebel will be starring, so we know that she’ll write herself some outrageous character. Maybe she’ll go meta like Mindy Kaling and skewer Hollywood’s perception of curvy female leads! Or perhaps she’ll cast herself as another misfit like we’ve seen in Pitch Perfect and Struck By Lightning. One thing’s for sure, she’s got plenty of incredible material just from her interviews and pre-Hollywood career. So long as she acts like she does in these amazing Rebel Wilson GIFs we found on Tumblr, we know we’ll be laughing so hard we can’t breathe.
