Genre-redefining movie musical PITCH PERFECT may already have been released in movie theaters and is now out on DVD and Blu-ray, but the momentum for the Cult hit is growing still – a radio single from the soundtrack is on the way, featuring breakout star Anna Kendrick!

Yes, Broadway and Hollywood crossover star Anna Kendrick’s performance of “Cups” – a reworked cover of “Cups (You’re Gonna Miss Me When I’m Gone)” by Lulu and The Lampshades – will be released officially to radio, in a slightly altered version, as a single, on March 26.

Of course, Anna Kendrick will also be starring in another movie musical later this year, as it was just announced last week that she has been confirmed for the lead role of Cathy in the stage-to-screen adaptation of Jason Robert Brown’s beloved Off-Broadway two-hander THE LAST FIVE YEARS, to co-star Jeremy Jordan, so this will only add to her movie musical momentum in 2013.

All Access confirms the release here.

Kendrick has appeared on Broadway in the Cole Porter revue HIGH SOCIETY, for which she was nominated for a Tony Award, and also notable to theatre fans for her work in A LITTLE NIGHT MUSIC with the New York City Opera and in the film musical CAMP.

The viral video hit is a witty, sweetly winking take on the indie earworm tune, with newly added xylophone and background instrumentation on the radio single version.

EXCLUSIVE: Jeremy Jordan keeps finding ways to show off his vocal chops as he moves from stage to screen. The Tony nominee has been cast opposite Anna Kendrick in The Last 5 Years, adapted from Jason Robert Brown’s award-winning off-Broadway musical. Jordan 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. Richard LaGravenese (Beautiful Creatures) is directing from his own script and will produce with Lauren Versel, Kurt Deutsch, and Janet Brenner for Lucky Monkey Pictures.

Jordan won the 2012 Theatre World Award for Outstanding Debut for Bonnie & Clyde and nabbed Tony, Drama Desk, and Outer Critics Circle Award nominations for his breakout turn in Newsies last year. The singer-actor has since racked up music-oriented screen credits including Warner Bros’ Joyful Noise and NBC’s Smash, in which he appears this season as Brooklyn composer Jimmy Collins. He is repped by ICM Partners and Schachter Entertainment.

In a recent interview with Collider.com, ‘Beautiful Creatures’ director Richard LaGravenese revealed that he is currently working on an indie film adaptation of the off-Broadway musical THE LAST FIVE YEARS. The show appeared off-Broadway in 2002 and will be revived at New York’s Second Stage Theatre this April.

The love story is all-sung and features just two characters. “[It's] about a young man and young woman in their 20′s who meet, fall in love, get married and break up, all in the span of five years,” explains the director. “All of her songs start at the end of their relationship and go to the beginning, and all of his songs start at the beginning and go to the end…It goes back and forth like that.”

Written by Jason Robert Brown, The Last Five Years explores a five-year relationship between Jamie Wellerstein, a rising novelist, and Cathy Hyatt, a struggling actress. The show uses a form of storytelling in which Cathy’s story is told in reverse chronological order (beginning the show at the end of the marriage), and Jamie’s is told in chronological order (starting just after the couple have first met). The characters do not directly interact except for a wedding song in the middle as their timelines intersect

  • Anna Kendrick says that she has a love for British men
  • Anna says that she finds their accents to be very sexy
  • She also admitted that she loves the British sense of humour

Hollywood actress Anna Kendrick has revealed how she finds British men to be very sexy, for a couple of reasons. Anna admits that she finds the British accent to be very sexy and, along with the sexiness of the accent, she finds that British men have a great sense of humour.

Kendrick explained to Marie Claire, “Well I think aside from the adorable accent, the sense of humour is a big part of it. American guys try really hard to be funny, but there’s a self deprecating humour with British guys that I think is really appealing and endearing.” Anna then went on to talk about her experience at working with George Clooney on Up in the Air.
She added, “It was really fortunate that on one of my first big movies I got to work with George Clooney he is someone who has really managed to live a real and normal life and be the same generous person in spite of the way his life is. That was a really lucky thing for me to see someone in that position who is so diligent about trying to just be a real person.”

Anna Kendrick is the first to admit that she’s not a big fashion person. “It’s definitely a world I’ve been introduced to recently, and I’m trying to embrace it,” she said at last night’s party for designer Marissa Webb at Barneys. (Webb, formerly the head of womenswear and accessories design at J.Crew, debuted her own label’s first collection at New York Fashion Week last September.) Kendrick picked out her dress, a floaty ivory design with a corseted leather bodice, the previous evening. “Marissa and I met last night, and I got to try on all these clothes and play with her little dogs and we had several glasses of Champagne,” she said.

But although Kendrick’s interest in fashion is growing, she won’t be attending any fashion shows this season, and still enlists lots of professional help when it comes to getting dressed. ”My stylist tries to push me towards things that are a little edgier,” she says. “I definitely have to push myself away from that comfort zone of really simple, romantic dresses, and that’s one of the things I like about Marissa’s line. She does hard and soft.”
