Wilson signs on for two comedies

Rebel Wilson has landed two comedic roles - in Night At The Museum 3 and He's F-ing Perfect.

The star of Pitch Perfect and Bridesmaids will get the chance to flex her funny muscle as she appears in the third Night At The Museum film alongside Ben Stiller and Robin Williams.

The Australian actress will also star in romantic comedy He's F-ing Perfect, in which she is set to play the "sharp-tongued roommate" of Amanda Seyfried's character, reported Deadline.

In the film, which will be directed by Jake Szymanski, Amanda will portray a social media-savvy girl who is pessimistic about love and vets her friends' dates to find flaws. When she discovers the perfect guy, she decides to use her Internet research skills to turn herself into his perfect match.

He's F-ing Perfect, which has been written by Lauryn Kahn, will be co-produced by Will Ferrell and his Gary Sanchez Productions partner Adam McKay.

Rebel has been cast as the night security guard at the British museum in Night At The Museum 3, which will also star Owen Wilson, Steve Coogan and Ricky Gervais.

The third instalment of the comedy series, which will see Shawn Levy in the director's chair for the third time, is expected to be released in time for Christmas 2014.

Rebel, who has won acclaim for her scene-stealing stint as Fat Amy in Pitch Perfect, was last seen in Michael Bay's Pain And Gain alongside Dwayne Johnson and Mark Wahlberg.
