Anna Kendrick & Jeremy Jordan: 'Last Five Years' Set Photos!

Anna Kendrick and Jeremy Jordan go retro in these first photos from the set of their upcoming movie musical The Last Five Years on Monday (June 17) in Brooklyn, New York.

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.”
