Introducing Rebellionaire.

More Rebel Wilson More Rebel Wilson

Rebel Wilson officially owns a record label, having inked a deal with Warner Music.

As Deadline reports, the Aussie talent has launched Rebellionaire and revealed that its first release will be the soundtrack for her upcoming directorial debut, The Deb.

“Take the ‘b’ out of billionaire and replace it with an ‘r’ for Rebel,” she told the publication.

Warner apparently teamed with Wilson after hearing the songs that will be featured on The Deb, a film based on a stage musical by Hannah Reilly (best known for the ABC TV series Growing Up Gracefully) that premiered in Australia last April. 

The stage musical ran for an extended season at the Australian Theatre For Young People in Sydney and featured original music from ARIA Award-winning indie-pop icon Megan Washington

The adaptation is set to begin filming in rural Australia in September this year, and, as Purple Sneakers notes, will star is fast-rising indie artist Stevie Jean, alongside Natalie Abbott and Charlotte MacInnes, who both starred in the original stage production.

Other cast members confirmed for the film include Tara Morice, Jay Laga’aia, Shane Jacobson and Wilson herself.  

An official synopsis for the play reads: “High school outcast and whimsical mega-dork Taylah longs to be the princess in her own fairy tale. Which isn’t easy in Dunburn – a drought-stricken Aussie town struggling for survival, where cool girls and footy hunks lead the pack. 

“But when her hyper-woke, inner-city cousin Maeve comes to stay, the pair join forces on a quest to make their mark on the best night of the year: the town’s annual Debutante Ball. In their search for social redemption and the spotlight, chaos ensues – along with a whole lot of fake tan, lace, and diamante tiaras for ya up-do.”

It’s expected that the adaptation of the musical comedy will stay true to the source material.
