Sundance has released the official lineup for the 2014 festival and two of Anna’s new movies are on the list. First is Life After Beth (which doesn’t show Anna as one of the principal cast so it’s still unclear what, if any, part Anna will play in it):
Zach is devastated by the unexpected death of his girlfriend, Beth. When she miraculously comes back to life, Zach takes full advantage of the opportunity to experience all the things he regretted not doing when she was alive. However, the newly returned Beth isn’t quite the way he remembered her, and before long, Zach’s world takes a turn for the worse.
The second is Happy Christmas:
It’s almost Christmas, and Jenny just broke up with her boyfriend. Without a real plan, she moves into her brother, Jeff, and sister-in-law, Kelly’s, spacious bachelor-pad basement in Chicago. As she reconnects with old friends and attempts to put her life back together, she continues to self-sabotage by repeatedly getting drunk and high. Kelly becomes fed up with Jenny’s immature behavior but soon realizes that she, too, feels stuck. As Christmas draws near, Jenny and Kelly realize that they can offer each other the solace and support they’ve both been craving.
The Hollywood Reporter reports that Anna is in talks for another project. She’s negotiating about Cinderella in Rob Marshall adaptation of the Broadway musical “Into the Woods”. Fingers crossed she’s getting the role.
Meryl Streep, Johnny Depp, and Chris Pine are among those in negotiations for roles in the adaptation of the Broadway musical.
Anna Kendrick is in talks to play Cinderella in Into the Woods, Disney’s adaptation of the Broadway musical being directed by Rob Marshall.
The project has attracted Meryl Streep, Johnny Depp, Chris Pine, Jake Gyllenhaal, James Corden, Emily Blunt, Tracy Ullman and Christine Baranski, all of whom are in various stages of negotiations to be part of the production.
The play is a darkly comic mashup of classic fairy tales that revolves around a childless baker (Corden) and his wife (Blunt), who attempt to lift a family curse by journeying into the woods to confront the witch that put the spell on them. Along the way, they encounter a group of characters including Rapunzel, Cinderella and Little Red Riding Hood.
In Woods, Cinderella is married to a vain prince (Pine) and described as a woman trying to find her place in the world.
If a deal is made with Kendrick, it will bring the actress back into the screen singing spotlight; she belted a few tunes in last year’s surprise hit Pitch Perfect. Kendrick has, however, been acting in Broadway musicals from a young age and won several awards.
Kendrick is currently shooting The Last 5 Years, Richard LaGravenese’s adaptation of the musical.
