Anna Signed for ‘The Archivist’!

Anna is attached to act in a new film called ‘The Archivist’! The film is about “an American archivist who desperately tries to win back a valuable account he lost to his ex-wife in the UK while attempting to get her back as well.” Other actors signed include Kevin Kline, Tom Wilkinson, and Sally Hawkins, with director Robin Wright.

Sometime this summer the extremely busy Robin Wright (Ari Folman’s The Congress, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, Moneyball, Rampart) will be moving behind the camera to make her directorial debut. In the first piece of news since The Archivist was announced late last year, Colin Firth is no longer attached but Wright has apparently managed to add her The Conspirator co-stars Kevin Kline and Tom Wilkinson along with, actresses Sally Hawkins and Anna Kendrick to what will be a robust fivesome of stars (this includes Wright in front of the camera as well).

Gist: Scripted by Ann Cherkis (writer behind the filmed in Montreal, direct-to-video The Secret), this is about an American archivist who desperately tries to win back a valuable account he lost to his ex-wife in the UK while attempting to get her back as well.

Worth Noting: Michael Stipe’s Single Cell Pictures will produce the film – which would be a first in a long time: they’ve only produced: Velvet Goldmine, Being John Malkovich, Thirteen Conversations About One Thing and 2004’s Saved!

Do We Care?: I’m citing Vera Farmiga’s Higher Ground as a recent, formidable example of an actress moving behind the camera and delivering what is a confident directing debut. We wish the same for Wright. {ioncinema.com}

The flick is set to start filming summer 2012. You can see more on their IMDB.
