Gemma Arterton Hears The Voices
Anna Kendrick also on for the thriller

Gemma Arterton, Anna Kendrick

Given that one coached an elderly choir in Song For Marion and the other showed aca-capable skills in Pitch Perfect, you might think that Gemma Arterton and Anna Kendrick signing on to The Voices means more feel-good tunes. You would be wrong. They’ll actually be part of the cast for a psychological thriller.

Ryan Reynolds is starring as Jerry Hickfang, a bathtub factory worker whose personality errs towards the weird. He’s secretly in love with a woman from accounting, but things go badly wrong when their relationship takes a murderous turn.

He’ll need help, and Jerry will get it from his evil chatty cat and benevolent talking dog, who try to guide him down a path to salvation.

Paranormal Activity franchise veteran Michael R. Perry wrote the script and Persepolis' Marjane Satrapi will start calling the shots shortly in Berlin.

Arterton was last seen battling evil in Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters. She has Runner, Runner with Justin Timberlake and Ben Affleck set to arrive next. As well as Pitch Perfect, Kendrick showed up in End Of Watch and the final Twilight Film. She’s part of the cast for The Company You Keep, which arrives on June 7.
