Ch-ch-check it out!
Above is a new picture of Anna Kendrick and Jeremy Jordan onset for the upcoming movie-musical hybrid, The Last Five Years, which just started filming in Brooklyn, despite being postponed for about 30 minutes due to strong winds and rain.
Let’s be real though, their biggest threat in Brooklyn was roaming packs of wild hipsters.
The two here are most likely singing the number I Can Do Better Than That, which has the character couple of Jamie and Cathy, Jeremy and Anna respectively, going on a road trip from New York to Connecticut.
The Last Five Years, written by playwright and lyricist Jason Robert Brown, is a two-person musical tour de force about an ill fated marriage written with an inneresting narrative structure; the character of Jason sings from the beginning of their relationship to the end, while Cathy sings backwards to the beginning. All it needs is a Hans Zimmer “BWWAAAAM” and it sounds like something Chris Nolan might direct!
While no release date has been released, musical theatre fans already mis-sing Les Mis are probably chomping at the bit for this adaptation to come out.
Thankfully, as much as love us some Russell Crowe, he won’t be lending his talents in this one. Ha!
