The Wrap reported earlier this year that Anna joined the cast of “Cake“. The movie wrapped up filming earlier this year and is already completed.
Sam Worthington, Anna Kendrick, Chris Messina, Felicity Huffman, William H. Macy. Britt Robertson, Lucy Walters (“Shame”), Camille Mana (“Smart People”), Manuel Garcia Rulfo (“Bless Me, Ultima) and Oscar-nominated actress Marianne Jean-Baptiste (“Secrets & Lies”) will join Jennifer Aniston in the indie movie “Cake,” TheWrap has learned.
Daniel Barnz (“Won’t Back Down”) will direct from Patrick Tobin’s script, which was voted to the 2013 Black List.
Aniston will play an acerbic woman named Claire who becomes fascinated by the suicide of Nina (Kendrick), a woman in her chronic pain support group. As she uncovers the details of Nina’s suicide and develops a poignant relationship with Nina’s husband (Worthington), Claire also grapples with her own very raw personal tragedy.
Messina will play Aniston’s ex-husband who still cares about her deeply, while Huffman will play the facilitator of the support group. Kendrick will appear as a ghost who taunts Claire. Mana will play Claire’s nurse, who has no patience for her demands.
The Wrap reported earlier this year
Veteran indie filmmaker Joe Swanberg has wrapped production on his latest movie “Digging for Fire,” which has added Anna Kendrick, Orlando Bloom, Jenny Slate and Mike Birbiglia to previously announced cast members Jake Johnson, Rosemarie DeWitt, Sam Rockwell and Brie Larson, an individual familiar with the project told TheWrap.
Johnson and DeWitt star in the film, while Rockwell, Larson and Bloom have significant supporting roles. Kendrick, Birbiglia and Slate have smaller roles in the film.
Swanberg directed from a script he co-wrote with Johnson, and the duo also produced along with Alicia Van Couvering.
Plot details are being kept under wraps, but one interesting nugget of information is that Ben Richardson (“Beasts of the Southern Wild”) shot “Digging for Fire” on 35mm.
Kendrick recently reteamed with Swanberg on “Happy Christmas” after working with him and Johnson on “Drinking Buddies.” She’ll soon be seen as Cinderella in Disney’s “Into the Woods.” She’s repped by CAA and attorney Todd Rubenstein.
The movie is currently in post-production and is expected to be released in 2015.
