Anna-Kendrick-Ready-For-Cake

Though its title would suggest light-hearted bakery rom-coms or potentially a Brass Eye spin-off drug pic, indie drama Cake actually focuses on a pain support group and has Jennifer Aniston as producer and star. She’s just gained a batch of fellow cast members in Anna Kendrick, Sam Worthington, Chris Messina, Felicity Huffman, William H. Macy, Britt Robertson, Lucy Walters, Camille Mana, Manuel Garcia Rulfo and Marianne Jean-Baptiste.

Never Back Down’s Daniel Barnz is set to direct, with Patrick Tobin providing the script. Aniston will be the acerbic Claire, who becomes obsessed with one of the other attendees in her chronic illness support group, Nina (Kendrick). When Nina commits suicide, Claire tries to find out more about her life and starts a relationship with Nina’s husband (Worthington), while also dealing with her own traumas. Lest you think Kendrick will appear briefly then vanish from the film, she sticks around as a ghost who taunts Claire.

Messina, currently to be found on US TV sitcom The Mindy Project, is Claire’s ex-husband, who still harbours feelings for her, while Huffman will be the group’s leader. Barnz is set to start the cameras rolling soon.
