Rebel Wilson is truly one of the funniest women in film at the moment. From Bridesmaids to the incredibly, aca-awesome Pitch Perfect, she’s managed to make us laugh until our stomachs hurt. But is she getting ready for an action-packed flick and is that film Catching Fire, the highly anticipated sequel to The Hunger Games?
Let’s not get too ahead of ourselves, before we start picturing Rebel fighting for survival and taking down Hunger Games contestants, the actress says her part would entail portraying “one of the people in the capitol.” After being asked by Buzzfeed if there’d be a chance we’d see her in The Hunger Games, Wilson said, “Um, seriously, I have had a meeting about being in The Hunger Games. Yes.” Besides divulging only very brief tidbits, the actress said playing someone from the capitol is really her only option, since everything else has already been cast.
Wilson does have a tendency to joke around quite a bit when she speaks. Can we trust that she’s actually being serious this time around? Hopefully we don’t have to wait for the film’s release to confirm if she does in fact make an appearance.
The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is set for a November 22, 2013 release. Meanwhile, you can see more of Rebel Wilson in the upcoming film Pain & Gain, starring Mark Wahlberg and Dwayne Johnson when it hits theaters on April 26.
