Deadline reported earlier this year that Anna will star alongside Sam Rockwell in “Mr Right”.
Sam Rockwell and Anna Kendrick will star in Mr. Right, with Tokarev helmer Paco Cabezas directing a script by Chronicle scribe Max Landis. Kendrick will play a woman whose bad luck streak at finding lasting love seems to end when she meets Mr. Right. That’s until she discovers he is a reformed hit man. When his dark past catches up, their fledgling relationship is tested as they try to save one another.
The film’s financed by Amasia Entertainment’s Michael Helfant and Bradley Gallo, who’ll produce with Circle Of Confusion’s Lawrence Mattis and Rick Jacobs, with Stephen Emery and Landis the exec producers. Two-year old Amasia co-financed the Halle Berry-starrer The Call and the upcoming Nick Jonas pic Careful What You Wish For. Circle Of Confusion has the Landis-scripted American Ultra in production and La Vida Robot in post. Shooting will begin this fall. Kendrick is repped by CAA, Rockwell by Gersh and Untitled. WME reps Landis (with Circle of Confusion) and Cabezas (with Echo Lake).
The movie is currently in pre-production and is expected to be released in 2015.
The Wrap reported that Anna joined the voice cast of the upcoming animated “Trolls“.
Oscar and Tony Award nominee Anna Kendrick has joined the cast of DreamWorks Animation’s upcoming feature film “Trolls,” TheWrap has learned.
Mike Mitchell will direct the musical comedy, while his “Shrek Forever After” collaborator Gina Shay will produce. 20th Century Fox will release “Trolls” on Nov. 4, 2016.
Kendrick will lend her “Pitch Perfect” pipes to the role of Poppy, the relentlessly upbeat princess at the center of “Trolls,” a fun-filled adventure that will reveal the story behind the beloved, colorful nature of the Trolls’ trademark, gravity-defying hair.
“Anna has proven herself to be a brilliant actress with an amazing singing voice. She’ll inject Poppy with the exact mix of spirit, sass and song that will no doubt give a whole new life to the iconic Troll dolls,” said Mitchell.
Variety is reporting that Anna’s upcoming movie “The Last 5 Years” sold to foreign markets.
Anna Kendrick’s musical “The Last Five Years” has sold out most key international markets prior to its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival.
“Five Years,” adapted and directed by Richard LaGravenese from the Broadway musical, is about a struggling actress portrayed by Kendrick and her novelist lover played by Jeremy Jordan (“Smash”) as they look back on the last half-decade of their relationship from very different viewpoints.
Producers are Lauren Versel, Kurt Deutsch and Janet Brenner.
The Exchange has closed sales including the U.K. to Icon Film Distribution, Portugal to Zon Lusomundo Audiovisuais, Eastern Europe to Voxell Copyrights, China to DDDream International Media, India to Pictureworks, Japan to Broadmedia Studios Corp., South Korea to Sonamu Pictures Co. and Australia/New Zealand to Regency Media.
“Carrying universal themes through the unifying power of song, audiences will fall in love with this film the way we have,” said Brian O’Shea of The Exchange.
Kendrick can currently be seen in “Happy Christmas.” She will appear as Cinderella in Disney’s “Into the Woods” this December.
Several Hollywood actors including Anna Kendrick, Anne Hathaway, Harrison Ford, and Bette Midler teamed up to make a PSA for the support of returning veterans in the United States.
