WOW! And the actress set to play Adele in the upcoming biopic IS…


We might know her for her wacky role in Bridesmaids and her comedic timing in Pitch Perfect, but it seems Rebel Wilson is only dying to get her teeth into a meatier role, and it looks like she'll be channelling her inner Adele to do it.

According to emerging reports, the 36-year-old Aussie is set to play the Someone Like You singer in an upcoming biopic, and is on the edge of her seat until everyone's favourite Londoner grants the actress her blessing.

Giving an insight into Rebel's dream career path, a source close to the star told the Daily Star: "Rebel has always wanted to prove she can cut it as a serious actress. She knows that she can’t go on playing wacky fatgirl roles forever."

"She thinks that this role could be the making of her career and transform her into a major movie star," they continued. "This is going to be a huge challenge for her because Adele is a legend at the peak of her popularity."

While we all know Rebel can hold a note or two. Adele's loyal fans will need to know the actress can do their idol justice in the rags to riches story – something which Rebel reportedly insists won't be a problem.

Speaking on behalf of the actress, the insider continued: "Rebel can’t match Adele’s vocal talents but she can certainly sing. And with a little technical wizardry, she’ll sound just like her in the movie."

Rebel as Adele? We could get on board….
