Anna Kendrick is in talks to star in the romantic comedy Pitch Perfect. THR reports that the actress is still in the early stages of a deal to star in the Gold Circle film that takes place in the world of collegiate a cappella groups. Universal is distributing. Pitch Pefect will be directed by Jason Moore (Avenue Q) and is based on the nonfiction book written by GQ magazine's Mickey Rapkin.
Kendrick would join Rebel Wilson (Bridesmaids), who has already cast in the project, which revolves around "a goth-like and rebellious student (Kendrick), unhappy to be at a school at which her father is a professor, who discovers her voice and becomes the secret weapon for the school’s female a cappella group." The project has a modest budget and is scheduled to start shooting this fall in New Orleans.
I think Kendrick is a great actress and this is the perfect project for her. She is best known for roles in Up In the Air, Twilight and Scott Pilgrim vs the World. She will be seen next opposite Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Seth Rogen in 50/50. What are your thoughts on this film?
