ytsfreeSeptember 8, 2022

Publicly, Anna Kendrick has been quiet lately outside of a few news items here and there (like when she apologized to camp counselors about the “Cups” song), but there appears to be a reason, as a new announcement shed light on Kendrick’s newest project. The Pitch Perfect alum is now jumping to make her feature directorial debut through a serious true crime thriller.

Deadline revealed that Anna Kendrick will make her directorial debut with the true crime thriller The Dating Game. In addition to being behind the camera, she will also produce and star in this flick. Upon the announcement hitting the press, Kendrick couldn’t hide her excitement over making her feature directorial debut with the upcoming crime thriller. In her words:

I’ve loved this script from the moment I read it. And while I was obviously thrilled to be playing the character of Sheryl, I felt so connected to the story, the tone, and the themes around gender and intimacy, that when the opportunity came up to direct the film, I jumped at it. It feels meant to be.
