Anna Kendrick and Jeremy Jordan will officially be starring opposite each other in the film adaptation of the beloved musical, The Last 5 Years!
The 28-year-old Tony-nominated actor, who is currently starring on Smash, will play “Jamie, a rising novelist whose relationship with struggling actress Cathy (Kendrick) is explored through an unusual narrative device: His story unfolds in chronological order as the pair first meet, while hers unfolds in reverse starting at the end of their marriage,” according to Deadline.
“Its official!! I will be playing Jamie in The Last five Years film!! @AnnaKendrick47 Literally a dream come true :)” Jeremy tweeted to confirm the news.
In case you want to see a live production of the musical, head on over to the Second Stage Theatre in New York City, where the first Off-Broadway production in many years will begin on March 7.
I am so excited for this. I love this musical and can't wait to see it on screen!
