Known for the Pitch Perfect trilogy, Rebel Wilson is set to star in a delightfully meta rom-com, Isn't It Romantic, alongside Liam Hemsworth and Adam DeVine.
According to EW, Wilson stars as "Natalie, a cynical architect who actively despises rom-coms and has dismissed them as fantasy. But when a scuffle with a thief knocks her unconscious, she wakes up smack in the middle of one — and she’s the leading lady."
Of course it wouldn't be a rom-com without a love triangle. Natalie's involves both handsome stranger (Hemsworth) and best friend (DeVine) who happens to also be in love with "a yoga ambassador played by Priyanka Chopra".
Additionally, learning from the hilarity of The Good Place, Natalie's rom-com is PG-13 which means swearwords and nudity are censored.
As for the role, Wilson spoke about Plus Size women in leading romantic roles: “I don’t think there’s been a rom-com where there’s a plus-size girl as the lead,” she says. “They’re normally cast as the sassy friend or the sidekick.” And we at The Fat Girl Show are excited to see her in this role.
Isn't It Romantic hits theaters Valentine's Day 2019.
