Rebel Wilson Movie Pitch Sold To Universal

Posted: Updated:

While 2012 has been The Year of Channing Tatum, 2013 looks like it may belong to Rebel Wilson. According to, the Australian-born actress and comedian has just sold an untitled comedy to Universal Pictures. No word on the plot, but Wilson will star in the film, as well as write and produce.

Wilson burst onto the scene with a breakout role in "Bridesmaids," and soon booked parts in "Bachelorette," "What to Expect When You're Expecting," and "Ice Age: Continental Drift." This month she gives a scene-stealing performance in Jason Moore's "Pitch Perfect" -- often improvising the movie's most memorable lines.

Other upcoming work for Wilson includes a spot in Michael Bay's "Pain & Gain" and Chris Colfer's "Struck By Lightning." She also wrote and is starring in pilot on ABC called "Super Fun Night." Wilson also fancies herself an rap star, rhyming under the moniker "Rebelicious." During the press rounds for "Pitch Perfect," she even appeared with Ellen DeGeneres and helped the talk show host rap "Shoop."
