As for what it's all about, Senior Year centres on a cheerleader "who wakes up after a 20-year coma and returns to high school to try to regain her status and claim the prom queen crown that eluded her".

Parks and Recreation director Alex Hardcastle is onboard to call 'ACTION!' from a script penned by Brandon Scott Jones.

In other news related to Wilson, the Australian star previously revealed that she was "paid money to be bigger" by various movie studio heads.

"Weirdly this year was always going to be the year of health. I've been naming my years now, and, that's kind of having these resolutions but for the whole year," she explained back in 2020.

"I turned 40 as well in March and so I thought, this is gonna be it. This is going to be the year for me to just concentrate on the health benefits. It's not like I want to lose weight and get to around a certain number.

"It's more than that, it's about dealing mentally with with why I was overeating and I had a job where I was paid a lot of money to be bigger, at times which kind of can mess with your head a bit."
