The 'Pitch Perfect' star is being lined up for a project tentatively titled 'Nicole', which would see Santa's daughter forced to deliver the presents.
Anna Kendrick is being lined up to play a female Santa Claus by Disney, in a new movie written and to be directed by Marc Lawrence, according to new reports.
In a project with the current working title of Nicole (as in ‘Saint Nic-ole’), the story apparently sees Santa Claus getting tired of delivering presents and turning the family business over to his son, who then balks at the idea of taking over. This would leave Kendrick having to step in to save the day, according to Variety.
The 31 year old star is due to start filming Pitch Perfect 3 this year. She’s completed a wide range of projects throughout 2016, including The Accountant, Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates and The Hollars, not to mention providing a voice-over role in animated hit Trolls.

While this slick dramatic thriller plays with some intriguing ideas and themes, it never actually breaks the surface, relying on silly plotting and simplistic moralising. It also uses autism as little more than a plot point. Still, it's sharply shot and edited to create plenty of interest, with comical asides and some intense action. So it's entertaining even if it's both preposterous and shallow.
It centres on Christian (Ben Affleck), a mild-mannered autistic accountant with a big secret: he's not only cooking the books for top gangsters around the world, but he's also an efficient killer. In his day job, he's hired by Lamar (John Lithgow) and his sister Rita (Smart) to locate an anomaly in their robotics company's books. Working with company accountant Dana (Anna Kendrick), Christian crunches the numbers and finds more than anyone expected. Meanwhile, Federal Agent Ray (J.K. Simmons) wants catch this mythical mob accountant-killer before he retires, so he coerces analyst Marybeth (Cynthia Addai-Robinson) into tracking him down. But just as they close in on Christian, so does hyperactive hitman Brax (Jon Bernthal).
The script by Bill Dubuque (The Judge) never even remotely holds water. Christian's autism provides some intriguing flashbacks, which build throughout the movie to a climactic moment, as his militaristic father cruelly treats his condition by sending him to Karate Kid-style training in Indonesia with his silently annoyed little brother. Where a real autistic child would revert into the horror of all of that, Christian emerges as adeptly skilled at engaging with everyone he meets and also able to fight more efficiently than experienced military commandos, whom he kills by the dozen as Brax and his army surround him. No, it makes absolutely no sense, but as a movie it's a rather amusing waste of time.

Anna Kendrick is currently promoting the new animated movie Trolls and paid a visit to Universal studios where she was interviewed by Mario Lopez for television show Extra. Universal City, California, United States - Tuesday 25th October 2016
The idea of making a film based on those colourfully hairy little plastic trolls was met by quite a bit of scepticism when it was first announced.
When the Trolls filmmakers managed to get Anna Kendrick and Justin Timberlake to voice the lead characters Poppy and Branch in what would become a riotous musical comedy, cleverly titled Trolls. Kendrick admits that she was intrigued when she first heard about it. "I had trolls growing up," she says. "I had the pencil toppers, which made it seem like homework was fun, even when homework wasn't fun. They are that kind of ugly-cute. So my first question to them after they finished pitching me the movie was, 'Does Poppy have a diamond belly button?' Because the jewelled belly button trolls are the best trolls. They said, 'No, but she has glitter freckles!' So I was like, okay, that's fine."

In voicing the character, Kendrick says she kept the image of Poppy in her mind the whole time. "I just love that she is tiny and she has pink hair and she loves parties," she says. "But she's also on this adventure to save her friends. Nobody else in the troll world is brave enough to go, and she's the one who goes after her friends. She even has a song to psych herself up and be brave and be courageous while being tiny and pink."

Almost pathologically buoyant, this brightly colourful animated comedy is so cheeky that it's impossible to dislike. The plot may be thin, and the wackiness a bit too full-on, but every moment is packed with smart verbal and visual jokes. This rapid-fire energy keeps us laughing all the way through, while the lively song score has us humming along and wishing we could get up there and dance.
It's set in a garish fantasy world in which sweetly happy trolls are locked in a mortal battle with gloomy bergen who think the only way they can achieve happiness is to eat a troll. It's been 20 years since the trolls escaped to form a secret forest community, so they throw a party to celebrate. Led by Princess Poppy (Anna Kendrick), the festivities feature so much music, glitter and hugging that the bergen's Chef (Christine Baranski) spots their location. The paranoid troll Branch (Justin Timberlake) had warned that this might happen, and sure enough Chef sweeps in and grabs a handful of trolls to take back to bergen King Gristle (Christopher Mintz-Plasse). Feeling responsible, Poppy sets out on a quest to rescue them, and Branch grudgingly accompanies her. They also get help from the lovelorn bergen scullery maid Bridget (Zooey Deschanel).
There isn't a moment in this story that carries even a hint of actual suspense, but the action scenes are still exhilaratingly madcap, and the darker moments along the way generate proper emotion. Thankfully, the lesson is so painfully obvious (you don't need to eat a troll to be happy!) that the filmmakers don't bother hammering it in. Instead, they fill every scene with deranged wit, ridiculous gags and lively character detail.

Spending time in hospital, John is quickly submerged into his old family and all the issues that comes with them - not only that but he must deal with his ex-girlfriends new partner who's also his mother's nurse.

Watching this gross-out comedy, it's clear that the gifted cast and crew had a great time making it. Scenes are packed with wildly ridiculous improvisation, as the script throws characters into some genuinely outrageous situations. And yet it's never actually funny. The longer the film goes on, the more the audience will wonder why they don't feel in on the joke.
It's loosely based on the true story of chucklehead brothers Mike and Dave (Adam Devine and Zac Efron), whose parents (Stephen Root and Stephanie Faracy) tell them they can't go stag to the wedding of their sister (Sugar Lyn Beard) in Hawaii. They have to find dates to calm down the antics that have ruined family events for years. So Mike and Dave put an ad on Craigslist, and it goes viral, drawing the attention of slacker flatmates Tatiana and Alice (Aubrey Plaza and Anna Kendrick). Pretending to be nice girls, they win over Mike and Dave and head to Hawaii for the big event. But the girls are even more anarchic than the boys. So it's no surprise that a wave of disruptive mayhem follows.
Basically this is a simple coming-of-age story, structured like a standard romantic-comedy that plays out in a series of messy set-pieces. Every beat of the plot is predictable, and the big surprise is that the filmmakers seem terrified of genuine sexuality. Despite using sex and nudity as the (ahem!) butt of most jokes, the film is childish and even prudish. And it doesn't help that virtually all of the gags are obvious and cheap.

Ben Affleck is cast as Christian Wolff in this new action thriller film The Accountant. An extraordinary man with highly advanced cognitive skills that allow him to think on a different level to that of a standard human, more in line with the likes of Picasso and Einstein. He works as a freelance accountant for some of the world's most dangerous criminal organisations from the cover of a CPA office in a small town. He has two sides to his job one being an accountant and the other being a sleeping assassin, a job that when required to do so will see him perform extraordinary measures.

Mike and Dave are two brothers who can't help but compete with one another. They're best friends and do everything together, but when it comes to playing a lifelong game of one-upmanship they're both in it to win it. When their sister announces that she's marrying her partner in Hawaii, Mike & Dave's mum and dad are instantly horrified by the possible antics their sons could get up to.
In a bid to calm their potential actions, it's suggested to the boys that they both bring a respectable date to the wedding. Someone they can present to their families and show a completely different - and more mature - side to their personality.
Alice and Tatiana are two girls who could actually rival the brothers and any of their past behaviour, who see Mike & Dave on TV talking about their search for a partner and decide that they're just the girls to accompany the boys to the island wedding. Their plan is successful but Mike and Dave soon figure out that there's more to the girls than they first thought.
The singer, actor and heartthrob will take a turn in the new animated musical, Trolls
There were created in the 1960s, came back out for a period of time in the 1970s and 1990s and have consequently delighted many a former child with their colourful hair and funny faces. Troll dolls were the must-have for a lot of children back in the day, whether you had a full-size doll or a small stick-on-the-end-of-your-pencil kind. Now they’re making yet another comeback - but this time in the form of Justin Timberlake.
He might not look much like a troll yet but Justin Timberlake will nevertheless appear in new musical movie, Trolls
That’s right, JT will be lending his voice to new animated musical comedy, Trolls, and will play survivalist Branch, who has been described as hiding "his surprising true colours".
