Since her days stealing scenes in the Twilight franchise and belting in Disney’s Into The Woods, Anna Kendrick continues to diversify her already impressive résumé. Up next, as first reported by Deadline, Kendrick will lead the ensemble cast of Lionsgate’s psychological thriller Alice, Darling.
The picture, which is already filming in Canada, will serve as the directorial debut for Marie Antoinette actress Mary Nighy. The plot follows Alice, portrayed by Kendrick, who begins acting strange and hiding secrets from her two best friends after getting a new boyfriend. While on a girl’s trip out of town, a local girl goes missing while Alice’s new boyfriend mysteriously arrives unannounced.
Kendrick is joined in the cast by the breakout star of Marvel’s Loki Wunmi Mosaku. Additionally, Hemlock Grove star Kaniehtiio Horn and Charlie Carrick (Reign) appear on the film’s call sheet as well. The Rest of Us screenwriter Alanna Francis penned the movie’s screenplay with Katie Bird Nolan (White Lie) and Sam Tipper-Hale (Kick-Ass 2) on board to executive produce alongside Anna Kendrick.
Kendrick achieved a bevy of recognition for Up in the Air, which earned her an Academy Award. Most recently, Kendrick leads the cast for Netflix’s sci-fi thriller Stowaway. Up next, the actress will lead the cast of Netflix’s surreal Rodney & Sheryl, based on a true story. Meanwhile, Wunmi Mosaku continuously churns out show-stealing performances in Marvel’s Disney+ series Loki. The actresses’ additional acting credits include roles in Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice and Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. Up next, Mosaku will join Sigourney Weaver and Elizabeth Banks in the upcoming drama Call Jane.
