Rebel Wilson has optioned the upcoming Image Comics series Crowded, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The Pitch Perfect star will develop the project under her Camp Sugar shingle, with an intent to produce and star in the film. Although the comic book is published by Image Comics, Oni Press' film division is producing the film.
Created by Christopher Sebela, Ro Stein, and Ted Brandt, the Crowded comic book series is scheduled to debut August 15 from Image Comics.
"Ten minutes in the future, the world runs on an economy of job shares and apps, including Reapr: a crowdfunding platform to fund assassinations," reads Image's description of the series. "Charlie Ellison leads a quiet, normal life until she’s suddenly targeted by a million-dollar Reapr campaign. Hunted by all of Los Angeles, Charlie hires Vita, the lowest-rated bodyguard on the Dfend app. As the campaign picks up speed, they’ll have to figure out who wants Charlie dead before the campaign’s 30 days - or their lives - are over."
Camp Sugar and Oni are currently in search of a screenwriter to adapt the series.
