Australian comedienne Rebel Wilson's star is continuing to rise in Hollywood after the success of her appearance in Bridesmaids.
Collider reports that Wilson has been added to the cast of Transformers director Michael Bay's new film Pain and Gain.
Based on a true story, it follows a pair of bodybuilders in Florida who get caught up in an extortion ring and a kidnapping scheme that goes terribly wrong.
Hollywood A-Listers Mark Wahlberg and Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson are playing the two bodybuilders. Ed Harris also stars.
Wilson will be playing Ramona Eldridge, a woman who finds herself in prison for her participation in the scheme.
It's just the latest in a long line of increasingly high profile roles for Wilson, who caught the eye of casting directors after her scene-stealing turn in Bridesmaids.
She will next be seen in comedies Struck By Lightning with Glee star Chris Colfer and Christina Hendricks, and Bachelorette with Kirsten Dunst and Isla Fischer.
Add to that parts in What To Expect When You're Expecting, Pitch Perfect, Small Apartments and Ice Age: Continental Drift.
