Rebel Wilson Wrote A K-Pop Comedy Called ‘Seoul Girls’

Rebel Wilson is one talented woman!

The Australian actress and comedian proved that once again on Tuesday, with Deadline reporting that Lionsgate has just picked up “Seoul Girls”, a comedy script written by the “Pitch Perfect” star.

Wilson will also produce and play a role in the film, which follows a Korean-American teenage girl as she and her friends enter a talent competition searching for an opening act for the world’s hottest K-pop boy band.

“With help from an ex-member of a British girl group and a former K-pop trainee, the Seoul Girls find their voices on the world’s biggest stage,” reads the film’s synopsis.

No word yet on casting or who will be tapped to direct.

“Seoul Girls” is the latest project for the 39-year-old star, who earlier this year discussed the difficulties of dating while famous.

“People get very intimidated, which is weird, the idea that I would be intimidating to anyone. But it happens all the time, to the point that someone I really liked was so intimidated and got a lot of anxiety and couldn’t have a relationship with me because I’m in the public eye,” she told InStyle, adding that it “sucked” when she meets someone she likes who can’t come to grips with her celebrity.

“If someone thinks they’re on a date with Fat Amy, that’s not going to happen,” she added. “Sorry, I can be almost as much fun, but I’m not like that in real life.”
