Anna Kendrick has been a big name since Pitch Perfect, but the actress has a few upcoming hits for her fans. Wondering what is coming up next for the Cups superstar? Back in 2008 she was cast as the annoying Jessica in the Twilight Saga. She played the character in all Twilight Saga films, but in the middle of that audiences saw her in Up in the Air where she was nominated for an Academy Award, Golden Globe Award, Screen Actors Guild Award, and won an MTV Movie Award for her role. Then in 2012 Pitch Perfect premiered and brought a whole new audience to the world of acappella.
Pitch Perfect ended in a way that they could easily do a sequel. Fans waited to hear if there would in fact be a second movie. Rumors spread for months before it was officially announced. Anna Kendrick is part of Pitch Perfect 2 which is sure to be a crowd pleaser. After how well the first movie did, it will be surprising if it was a flop. Of course, the film is still in pre-production and will not be released until May of 2015. Fans still have over a year to wait before experiencing the sequel.
The good news is there will be two great chances to see Anna Kendrick perform before then. Two different Musical Theatre shows are being brought to life on the big screen, and Anna Kendrick is a huge part of both film adaptations. The first, making news in the latest edition of Entertainment Weekly is the film adaptation of the Broadway Musical The Last 5 Years. Anna Kendrick will star next to the fantastically talented Jeremy Jordan. Jeremy Jordan recently starred in the NBC television show Smash alongside Megan Hilty and Katherine McPhee. There is no specific release date set at this time, but they are in production and the release is set for 2014.
Following in Les Misérables fashion, the next film adaptation will open on Christmas Day 2014. This is also an adaptation of a Broadway Musical, more widely known. It is musical of fairytales, Into The Woods. Anna Kendrick will star alongside Meryl Streep and Johnny Depp among others.
Anna Kendrick’s career is really growing and she will be around for years and years to come. Who knows what she will do next. She is an all-around talent.
