Behind The Candelabra scribe Richard LaGravenese is writing and directing The Last 5 Years, the film adaptation of Jason Robert Brown’s musical. The pic begins shooting this week in NY, with CAA handling domestic sales and The Exchange shopping international. Anna Kendrick, who saw success in last year’s music-based pic Pitch Perfect, is starring with Tony and Grammy nominee Jeremy Jordan. The musical is a deconstruction of the love affair and marriage of Cathy Hiatt, a struggling actress, and Jamie Wellerstein, a rising novelist. From Lucky Monkey Pictures and Sh-K-Boom Records, Lauren Versel, Kurt Deutsch, LaGravenese and Janet Brenner are producers, and Steve Norman is co-producer.
