Anna Kendrick makes remarkable career change with new film

Anna Kendrick is making a big career move with the news that she is set to make her directorial debut with the upcoming film The dating game.

The dating game follows the true story of Cheryl Bradshaw, who appeared on the 1970s dating show The dating game and matched with a charming man named Rodney Alcala. However, Alcala was actually a serial killer.

Kendrick will star in the film as the lead actor, as well as producing and directing, while the screenplay was on The Black List and is written by Ian MacAllister McDonald. In a statement about the news, Kendrick said she fell in love with the script immediately.

“While I was obviously excited to play the character of Cheryl, I felt so connected to the story, the tone, and the themes around gender and intimacy that when I was given the opportunity to direct the film, I jumped at it.” Kendrick said.

The support I have already received from Stuart Ford and everyone at AGC, Vertigo and BoulderLight is inspiring and empowering.

While this is Kendrick’s directorial debut, she has previously produced with her production company Let’s Go Again, whose credits include the HBO Max series I love life and of Netflix Stowaway. He will also star Alice, dear, which will soon premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival.
