Anna Kendrick from 'Twilight', 'Up in the Air' in negotiations to star in romantic comedy 'Pitch Perfect'
Scheduled to begin shooting this fall in New Orleans
Since garnering an Oscar nomination in 2010 for "Up in the Air", "Twilight" tenth-banana Anna Kendrick's career has really been heating up, with the actress racking up major roles in films like this fall's "50/50" opposite Joseph Gordon-Levitt.
The script is based on a nonfiction book of the same name written by GQ journalist Mickey Rapkin, about a rebellious college student who joins an all-female a cappella group at her university and becomes the crown jewel of the lineup. TV and theater director Jason Moore will be making his feature-film debut with the project, which earlier added "Bridesmaids" actress Rebel Wilson to the cast.
The project is being produced by Gold Circle, who are eying a fall start date in New Orleans. In addition to "50/50", Kendrick will next be seen in "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1" this November.
