Rebel Wilson could be joining the likes of Angelina Jolie and Jack Black by voicing a character in Kung Fu Panda 3.

The Pitch Perfect star is said to be in talks to join the third instalment of the DreamWorks animation, along with Breaking Bad's Bryan Cranston and Mads Mikkelsen, according to The Hollywood Reporter's Heat Vision blog.

Bryan and Mads are rumoured to voice the villain after executive producer Guillermo del Toro revealed that Kung Fu Panda 3 will have "the most formidable villain in the series."

Jack, Angelina, Seth Rogen and Jackie Chan are among the voice cast returning to reprise their roles in the third film, which will be directed by Kung Fu Panda 2 director Jennifer Yuh Nelson.

Details about the plot are firmly under wraps, but the end of Kung Fu Panda 2 hinted that the next film will involve martial arts-fighting panda Po (voiced by Jack) meeting his real dad.

Kung Fu Panda 3 is scheduled for a December 2015 release.
