Anna Kendrick will star alongside Sam Rockwell in 'Mr. Right' as an unlucky-in-love woman who, when she finally meets Mr. Right, discovers he is a reformed hit-man.
The 28-year-old actress has signed on to join the 'Seven Psychopaths' actor in the upcoming romance, which will be directed by Paco Cabezas, with shooting expected to begin later this year, according to Deadline.com.
The script for 'Mr. Right' was penned by 'Chronicle' screenwriter Max Landis - who will also executive produce alongside Stephen Emery - and centres on a woman (Kendrick) who, after a string of failed relationships, meets her ''Mr. Right''.
However, as their relationship develops the truth will unravel and she will discover that her new love is a former hit-man, and their relationship will be put to the test as they're forced to save each other as his past comes back to haunt him.
The film is being financed and produced by Amasia Entertainment's Michael Helfant and Bradley Gallo with Circle of Confusion's Lawrence Mattis and Rick Jacobs also taking on producing roles.
