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.

Kendrick - who is known for parts in films including 'Pitch Perfect' and 'Scott Pilgrim vs. the World' - will next be seen in Disney's 'Into the Woods' followed by 'Pitch Perfect 2', while Rockwell is to star in the reboot of 'Poltergeist' next year.
