Anna Kendrick: Hard at Work in NYC
Kicking off another day on the job, Anna Kendrick showed up on the set of “The Last 5 Years” in Manhattan this morning (June 18).
The “Up in the Air” babe donned a denim jacket with an orange zig-zagged top and dark trousers as she milled around the sidewalk in between takes.
Also starring Jeremy Jordan, “The Last Five Years” is based on a musical of the same name in which a struggling actress and her novelist lover each illustrate the struggle and deconstruction of their love affair.
Yesterday Anna tweeted, “Cathy and Jamie 4ever #LastFiveYears #DayOne,” and Jeremy added, “I almost killed us both in this car…”

Earlier in the day, the 28-year-old actor was spotted chatted on his cell phone while on set near the water.
In the recent off-Broadway staging of the musical, the song “I Can Do Better Than That,” sung by Anna‘s character Cathy, takes place in a car, so we definitely think this is the first scene they are shooting!
“Cathy and Jamie 4ever #LastFiveYears #DayOne,” Anna tweeted, and Jeremy later said “I almost killed us both in this car…”
“Day one of the last five years!” Jeremy added on his account.
The first shot from the set of the highly anticipated feature film adaptation of Jason Robert Brown’s cult hit musical THE LAST FIVE YEARS directed by Richard LaGravenese and starring Jeremy Jordan and Anna Kendrick has just been released.
THE LAST FIVE YEARS traces the beginning and end of the relationship between writer Jamie (Jordan) and actress Kathy (Kendrick) from alternating perspectives in a unique and arresting manner, highlighted by Brown’s lyrical, pop-flecked score.
Also, LAST FIVE YEARS stars Jordan and Kendrick have taken to Twitter, along with the musical’s Tony Award-winning composer/lyricist Jason Robert Brown, to comment on today’s commencement of filming.
Jordan announced on Twitter: “Day one of the last five years!”
Kendrick posted the photo on her Instagram account (here), captioning it: “Cathy and Jamie 4ever #LastFiveYears #DayOne”
Brown amusingly wrote on Twitter: “I just watched
@JeremyMJordan drive 20 feet on a bicycle four times. My work is done here.”
