Kim Kardashian’s new and first comedy film, The Fifth Wheel, will soon be a reality on Netflix. Fans of the KUWTK star are about to see another side of her.

Kim Kardashian’s New Comedy Film: The Fifth Wheel

Kim Kardashian and Netflix now have a new comedy film collaboration for the first time. Following a handful of other interested parties, including five studios, the actress decided to sell to the streaming giant for an unknown price.

Deadline first reported the news on Sunday, claiming Kim Kardashian’s Netflix project is titled “The Fifth Wheel.” Funnily enough, what appears to be a mouth-watering offer for Netflix has no scripts yet.

Reports say that writers Paula Pell and Janine Brito thought of a storyline and realized Kim K was their best bet. They pitched it to her, and the onscreen maven found it interesting enough.

The co-writers, alongside the film’s lead star, approached studios with the offer. This happened immediately after the actor’s strike was suspended.

According to Deadline, having Kim on the project influenced studios’ interests. The businesswoman was present at every meeting and pitched her interest in acting and producing the film.

What To Expect From Kim Kardashian’s “The Fifth Wheel”

Even though the idea has only been sold with no scripts, the expectations should be high. Indeed, all fans have to do now is to hope for the best and expect a brilliant film.

Pell and Paula, who will jointly work with Kim, are exceptional women in the entertainment scene. Pell is credited for bringing many SNL predictions to life. The writer noted for her expertise in comedy also wrote the comedy film “Sisters” featuring Tina Fey and Amy Poehler.

Meanwhile, Paula is known for her involvement in EP’d Judd Apatow’s “This is 40.” For the comedic project, it is estimated that Netflix will spend between $30 million to $80 million.
