Australian actor Rebel Wilson will be producing a comedy film about K-pop.
The film, currently titled Seoul Girls, is written by Wilson with a recent revision done by screenwriter Young Il Kim. According to Deadline, the film has been picked up by Lionsgate and is in the works.
Seoul Girls will be based around a Korean-American high-school girl and her friends as they enter a global talent competition to become the opening act for a famous K-pop boy group. The girls get help from a former British girl group member and ex-K-pop trainee to achieve their dreams.
Rebel Wilson is also set to appear in the film, though her role is not confirmed.
