Rebel Wilson is producing a comedy based on K-Pop
Rebel Wilson – better known for her roles in Pitch Perfect – is preparing her first feature film, a comedy called Seoul Girls.
The comedy will be another musical adventure, similar to previous Pitch Perfect films. Wilson will play one of the characters. This is Hollywood’s first attempt at capturing the popularity of the world of Korean pop music.
Seoul Girls will tell the tale of a Korean-American high-school student, and her friends’ attempts to climb the music industry ladder. They will have help from a former member of a British pop group (one would assume that’s where Wilson comes in).
It is not yet known when shooting will begin.
Wilson has previously stolen the show in films like Bridesmaids, Bachelorette and Pitch Perfect. Next for the actress will be Isn’t It Romantic on Netflix, The Hustle starring alongside Anne Hathaway, as well as Cats – released on December 20.
The actress was recently seen in Taiki Waititi’s black humour comedy, Jo Jo Rabbit.
