The new comedy is based on a real life story of two brothers who advertise for wedding dates on Craigslist and are responded to by two crazy but beautiful women.

The 'Pitch Perfect' star, 29, will play 27-year-old Zac's love interest, while Adam DeVine has been cast as his brother.

Jake Szymanski is directing the film and 'Bad Neighbors' writers Andrew J. Cohen and Brendan O'Brien will pen the script, reports Empire Online.

Meanwhile, 2015 is sure to be a busy year for the brunette beauty, who is set to appear in 'Table 19', 'Pitch Perfect 2' and will next be seen in the musical adaptation 'The Last Five Years' which is due out on April 17.

The pretty star recently admitted she found auditioning for her role in the movie "terrifying" as she was asked to sing for Broadway songwriter, Jason Robert Brown, to secure the part.

She said: "I figured at some point they would want to make sure that I could sing it, so I had to go to Jason's house and sing two songs for him from the show. That was a completely terrifying experience."
