As Natalie in the forthcoming “Isn’t It Romantic”, Rebel Wilson leads the cast as the main character in a romantic comedy that is also a sendup of romantic comedies. After banging her head while fleeing a crime scene, Natalie wakes up inside a typical romantic comedy film, complete with a new and fancy residence and a “gay friend” played by Brandon Scott Jones.
Liam Hemsworth is the handsome, wealthy lead she comes to believe she must fall in love with in order to escape this strange new world. She is pleased with her new, fancier home and professional lives, but soon runs into the sexual snag that the movie she is in is rated PG-13 and therefore she cannot sleep with her love interest.
In addition to the 2019 “Isn’t It Romantic”, Rebel Wilson will appear in the films “The Hustle” and “JoJo Rabbit” and is currently filming the role of Jennyanydots in a theatric version of Broadway’s “Cats.”
