It has been reported that Bridesmaids star Rebel is keen to portray Adele in an upcoming film about her meteoric rise to fame in a bid to prove herself as a serious actress.

The Australian actress is known for comedic roles such as her turn in Bridesmaids, How To Be Single and Pitch Perfect.

A source told The Daily Star: "Rebel has always wanted to prove she can cut it as a serious actress. This is going to be a huge challenge for her because Adele is a legend at the peak of her popularity."

The 36-year-old has previously claimed that she is often mistaken for Adele, telling the BBC: "Sometimes I get confused for Adele. And I'm like 'are you kidding me? Are you serious, she's like well better'."
