Maybe we’ll be lucky enough to get the first on set photos with Anna for this film:
Last week CBS Films announced that Bryan Cranston, Anna Kendrick, and Miles Teller had signed on to star in a comedy tentatively titled Get A Job.
Nick Braun, Alison Brie, Brandon T. Jackson, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, and Jay Pharoah are set to co-star in the film which will be directed by Dylan Kidd.
Get A Job is “a multi-generational comedy about four recent college graduates who discover that their lofty expectations and the realities of adulthood are two very different things. Teller will play Will Davis, who finds his true calling after struggling through an entry level job. Kendrick plays Jillian Stewart, Will’s type-A girlfriend, who lives her life according to the strictest of plans. Cranston plays Roger Davis, Will’s father who is hunting for a job at the same time as his son. Braun, Mintz-Plasse and Jackson will play Will’s three friends, (Charlie, Ethan and Luke, respectively), each of whom find careers with some interesting results. Brie will play Tanya, one of the group’s sharp-witted co-workers. Pharoah will play Skeezy D, who starts his own recession-proof business.”
The movie, which began filming in Los Angeles on Monday, will shoot scenes at the Equator Cafe today, March 14, 2012.
There’s a new trailer of “What to Expect when you’re Expecting” with a sort scene with Anna we’ve never seen before:

“We are making an emotionally honest comedy about the challenges that every generation faces in our rapidly changing world. We have assembled an extraordinary cast to make that happen,” commented Kidd.
Maria Faillace and Ryan Conroy are overseeing the project for CBS Films. The film is set to begin production on March 12th in Los Angeles.
Open Road Films will release David Ayer‘s cop drama End of Watch open September 28th. Per the press release, “the film stars Jake Gyllenhaal and Michael Peña as young Los Angeles police officers Taylor and Zavala as they patrol the city’s meanest streets of south central Los Angeles.” The film also stars Anna Kendrick, Frank Grillo, and America Ferrera. When Steve visited the set last year, he said in his report, “End of Watch is going to look and feel completely different than any cop movie you’ve ever seen and I left excited by what I saw.”
At the box office, the September 28th release date puts End of Watch up against Rian Johnson‘s sci-fi action film Looper, the dramas Trouble with the Curve starring Clint Eastwood, and Won’t Back Down (formerly titled Still I Rise) starring Viola Davis and Maggie Gyllenhaal. Here’s the press release and the official synopsis:
“END OF WATCH” WILL OPEN SEPTEMBER 28, 2012 IN THEATERS NATIONWIDE
WRITTEN AND DIRECTED BY DAVID AYER, BOLD & INNOVATIVE COP DRAMA STARS JAKE GYLLENHAAL AND MICHAEL PEÑA
LOS ANGELES, CA, March 2, 2012 – Open Road Films has set September 28, 2012 for the nationwide release of Exclusive Media’s, in association with Emmett/Furla Films, highly-anticipated film, End Of Watch, which stars Academy Award® nominee Jake Gyllenhaal, Michael Peña, Academy Award® nominee Anna Kendrick, Frank Grillo and America Ferrera and is written and directed by David Ayer (writer/director of Street Kings and Harsh Times; screenwriter of Training Day, The Fast and the Furious and S.W.A.T.).
A powerful story of family, friendship, love, honor and courage, End Of Watch stars Jake Gyllenhaal and Michael Peña as young Los Angeles police officers Taylor and Zavala as they patrol the city’s meanest streets of south central Los Angeles.
Giving the story a gripping, first-person immediacy, the action unfolds entirely through footage from the handheld HD cameras of the police officers, gang members, surveillance cameras, and citizens caught in the line of fire to create a riveting portrait of the city’s most dangerous corners, the cops who risk their lives there every day, and the price they and their families are forced to pay.
End of Watch is produced by David Ayer’s Crave Films, John Lesher under his Le Grisbi Productions, and Nigel Sinclair and Matt Jackson of Exclusive Media who also financed the film, in association with Emmett/Furla Films. Exclusive Media holds worldwide distribution rights. Executive producers are Guy East and Exclusive Media’s Tobin Armbrust, Jake Gyllenhaal, Adam Kassan, Chrisann Verges, Randall Emmett and George Furla of Emmett/Furla Films, Stepan Martirosyan and Remington Chase.
A brand new “ParaNorman” trailer released recently which has more scenes of Anna’s character Courtney. I also updated the gallery with a new still and photos of Anna’s character figures that got used in the film. You can check official updates at “ParaNorman” official site, twitter, facebook or instagram.
Here is the official synopsis for the movie:
A misunderstood boy who can speak with the dead takes on ghosts, zombies and, worst of all, grown-ups, in order to save his town from a centuries-old curse.
Annakeeps it cute in a McQ printed dress as she attends the 2012 Film Independent Spirit Awards held at the Santa Monica Pier on Saturday in Santa Monica, Calif.
Our beauty completed her look with Brian Atwood “Honey” sandals and a Kelly Wearstler clutch.
Anna was also spotted backstage at the Official Presenter Gift Lounge. There, she picked up a few goodies from Tree Hut, AMC Theaters and Crunch.
Deadline reports that Open Road will do “End of Watch” distribution and plan for a release later this year with a commitment to a 2,000-screen run!
Open Road Makes $2M Deal With $20M P&A For David Ayer’s ‘End Of Watch’
Open Road is closing a deal for U.S. distribution rights to End Of Watch, the David Ayer-directed cop drama that stars Jake Gyllenhaal, Michael Pena and Anna Kendrick. I’m told that Open Road will release the film later this year. They’ve committed to a 2,000-screen run, with a minimum guarantee just north of $2 million and a $20 million P&A commitment.
It is not quite as sizable commitment as Open Road made when it acquired The Grey for $8 million with a $25 million P&A commitment, but it is substantial, and evidence that when Tom Ortenberg sees a film he can market, he goes after it hard. The Grey has so far grossed $50 million domestic.
Ayer, who wrote Training Day and wrote and directed the cop dramas Harsh Times and Street Kings, began this film as a “found footage” type drama about two LAPD partners and best friends. The story was to be told from the vantage point of surveillance cameras and the camera mounted on the front of every patrol car. That evolved into more of a traditional narrative, but a lot of the vantage point still comes from cameras that give the film a first person feel.
