In Bride Hard Wilson plays the role of the maid of honour at a wedding where the bridal party becomes hostages to a group of mercenaries. Wilson's character is a secret agent, ready to unleash fury on anyone attempting to ruin her best friend's special day.

Bride Hard defies strikes with an interim agreement

Amid the ongoing SAG-AFTRA and WGA strikes that have halted major studio productions, Bride Hard was granted an Interim Agreement due to its status as an independently produced film. This special agreement allows production to continue despite the strikes. SAG-AFTRA released an official list of approved productions under Interim Agreements and Bride Hard was one of them.

The strike-affected productions have caused delays in the entertainment industry, impacting various projects. However, Bride Hard and other approved independent films have been fortunate enough to resume filming, providing some relief to the industry.

Rebel Wilson is set to make her directorial debut with the musical comedy The Deb, based on Sydney's Australian Theatre for Young People production of the same name. Wilson's musical talents, well demonstrated in the Pitch Perfect films, have also led her to form her own label called Rebellionaire under Warner Music. The label will release the soundtrack for The Deb, featuring songs by Hannah Reilly and Meg Washington.

Originally scheduled to begin production in Australia in October through Wilson's Camp Sugar Productions, The Deb is facing delays due to twin strikes.
