Anna Kendrick: 'Cups' Video Shoot

Anna Kendrick dresses up in an apron while on set for the “Cups” music video in Los Angeles on Sunday afternoon (March 24).

The 27-year-old actress teamed back up with Pitch Perfect director Jason Moore for the video.

The tune, which Anna sings for her audition in the hit movie, has been climbing up the Billboard Hot 100 chart since it’s debut.

“‘Cause I’m a huge loser, I thought the best way to spend an entire afternoon would be watching (Burden‘s) video 50 times and teaching myself how to do it,” Anna previously told David Letterman. “[When the producers] found out I could, they wanted me to (perform) it in the movie.”

Anna Kendrick Dons An Apron On The Set Of Her New Music Video Cups!

Anna Kendrick looks all kinds of ADORBS covered in flour!

On the set of her music video for upcoming film-soundtrack-to-radio single, Cups, the adorable Pitch Perfect star took to her Instagram to share a picture of herself in an apron and kitchen gear.

And it looks like things got quite messy!

Cups, originally a Lulu and the Lampshades, was remade by Anna for the Pitch Perfect soundtrack. But it was recently announced that the song would be remixed for radio release as well.

Think Anna’s voice has what it takes to achieve mainstream radio success?

We don’t think she should be too worried. We already know this one’s capable of anything.

P.S. The pint-size actress looks completely unfazed by her recent breakup from long-time love, Edgar Wright. Way to go, lady!

Anna Kendrick in Talks to Star in Romantic Comedy ‘Pitch Perfect’ + Scans

I’ve updated the magazine scans to include a recent interview Anna and Joseph Gordon-Levitt on 50/50 for Elle Canada. There’s also clippings from US Weekly and some international scans.

I’m super excited about Anna possibly joining Pitch Perfect, because she would be showing off her amazing singing voice :D!

Anna Kendrick is in negotiations to star in Pitch Perfect, the Gold Circle romantic comedy set in the world of collegiate a cappella groups. Universal is distributing.

The project will be directed by Jason Moore (Avenue Q) and is based on the nonfiction book written by GQ magazine’s Mickey Rapkin.

Rebel Wilson, one of the breakouts of Bridesmaids, is already cast in the project, which revolves around a goth-like and rebellious student (Kendrick), unhappy to be at a school at which her father is a professor, who discovers her voice and becomes the secret weapon for the school’s female a cappella group.

The modestly-budgeted pic is to being shooting this fall in New Orleans. Sources caution that Kendrick’s deal is still in the early stages.

The role could serve a nice 180 for Kendrick, who has made a name for herself playing self-assured Type A personalities. She was nominated for an Oscar for her performance in Up In the Air, played the high-achieving human best friend of Bella in the Twilight movies and was last seen as the goal-oriented sister of Scott Pilgrim in Scott Pilgrim vs the World.

The CAA-repped actress next appears with in 50/50 with Joseph Godron-Levitt and Seth Rogen {hollywoodreporter.com}
