Rebel Wilson has been somewhat of an under-the-radar comedic breakout. The Australian actress was first introduced to American audiences in 2011's Bridesmaids, playing Kristen Wiig's dry, sardonic roommate.
Wilson followed up that memorable performance with appearances in some of this year's biggest films. She played Janice in What to Expect When You're Expecting, voiced Raz in Ice Age: Continental Drift, and the bride Becky in Bachelorette.
The actress also has a starring role in the recently-released musical comedy Pitch Perfect, as Fat Amy. Following the successful opening of that film, Universal will develop an original idea from Wilson.
Wilson will write, produce, and star in the project. No plot, cast, or scheduling details are available.
