Rebel Wilson will be starring in the upcoming movie, Isn’t It Romantic, scheduled to be released by Warner Bros. Pictures and New Line Cinema on February 13th, 2019, just in time for Valentine’s Day.
Isn’t It Romantic revolves around Wilson’s character Natalie, an Australian architect working in New York City. She tries everything she can to get noticed at her firm, but her dreams of becoming the next Frank Lloyd Wright are thwarted at every turn as her duties are relegated to doing mundane jobs, such as delivering coffee and bagels to her co-workers and superiors.
Natalie’s life takes a dramatic turn one day when she tries to stop a mugger in one of New York City’s seedy subway stations. But while fleeing the scene of the crime, she gets hit on the head and knocked out. When she wakes up she finds herself in a fantasy world of romance and comedy, a virtual ‘movie’ where love always prevails in the end and the couples live happily ever after.
