The reality TV star, aged 43, is all set to star in and produce the feature film 'The 5th Wheel', according to Deadline.

The movie, currently in the pitching phase across different studios, is being scripted by Paula Pell, known for her work in 'Wine Country', and Janine Brito from 'Girls5Eva'.

Deadline reported that several studios are in a bidding war for the film, highlighting Kim's active involvement in presenting the project during meetings, thus attracting the studios' interest.

Pell, who is also taking on a producing role, boasts a background from 'Saturday Night Live' and collaborations with Tina Fey in '30 Rock', along with working alongside Amy Poehler and Judd Apatow.

Meanwhile, this project marks Brito's return since her appearance in 'Wine Country', a comedy featuring Fey and Poehler, in which Pell also starred.

From reality TV fame to diverse screen ventures

Exploring Kim Kardashian's acting portfolio, the media personality gained fame through reality TV shows like 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians' and the ongoing series 'The Kardashians'.

She recently appeared in FX's 'American Horror Story: Delicate' and lent her voice to two 'Paw Patrol' films.

Additionally, she made an impression on 'Saturday Night Live' in 2022 with a humorous monologue filled with self-aware jokes.

Amid her reality TV success, Kim has also dabbled in other acting ventures.

Before her reality TV career, she had a role in a 'Fall Out Boy' music video and starred in the 2008 film 'Disaster Movie', a project she later admitted she found 'mortifying' and couldn't bear to watch during her appearance on the ABC game show 'Big Fan'.
