Kendrick Recalls The Last Five Years
In a new music-filled film

While UK audiences won’t get to see her impressive musical stylings in Pitch Perfect for another couple of months, Anna Kendrick is planning to put them to the test again for a new music-based romantic comedy drama. Kendrick has locked in the lead of The Last Five Years.

Richard LaGravenese, who is putting the finishing touches on Beautiful Creatures, is on board to adapt and direct the film based on Jason Robert Brown’s acclaimed stage version.

But instead of being a simple relationship story, it has a little fun with the idea, showing aspiring actress Cathy (Kendrick)’s story in reverse chronological order from the end of a marriage and her husband’s story running forwards from shortly after they meet. The two timelines don’t interact directly – on stage at least – except for a marriage song in the middle. So it could effectively have both a happy and sad ending…

Distribution rights to the movie are being sold at the American Film Market starting next week. Kendrick will next show up in Pitch Perfect (out December 21), Get A Job and Rapturepalooza.
