Rebel is joined in the film by a whole host of Hollywood stars, including Alicia Silverstone and This is Us actor Justin Hartley.

Recently, Rebel opened up about how she changed her career path and became an actor after taking a year off to travel to Africa and it was here that she caught malaria and her life changed forever.

"I took a gap year in between high school and college and I went to Africa for the year, got malaria, really, really badly, and I hallucinated that I was an actress and that I was really good and so I came back to Australia and said: 'Guys, I think… I mean, I will go to law school as well, but I think I've got to pursue acting too, because I had the vision."
