Actress Rebel Wilson will co-star in the movie musical Pitch Perfect, to be directed by Tony Award winner Jason Moore, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Kay Cannon will write the script.

Based on Mickey Rapkin's book Pitch Perfect: The Quest for Collegiate A Cappella Glory, the movie will unfold within the arena of college a cappella competitions.

Wilson will play Fat Amy who is a member of the female a cappella group Divisi and goes head to head against a counterpart from the male group known as the Treblemakers. The actress is currently on screen in Bridesmaids and will co-star in the film version of the hit Off-Broadway play Bachelorette.

Moore received a Tony nomination for his direction of Avenue Q, with other Broadway credits including Shrek the Musical and Steel Magnolias. In addition, he recently directed the new musical Tales of the City.
