Jeremy Jordan Joins “Last 5 Years”

Tony Award nominee Jeremy Jordan has been cast opposite Anna Kendrick in a film adaptation of Jason Robert Brown’s off-Broadway musical “The Last 5 Years” at Lucky Monkey Pictures.

Jordan will play Jamie, a rising novelist engaged in a relationship with a struggling actress named Cathy (Kendrick).

What makes this story different is that the two character’s stories unfold in opposite ways – his in chronological order starting with their first meeting, hers in reverse order starting with their divorce.

Richard LaGravenese (“Beautiful Creatures”) directs from his own script and will produce with Lauren Versel, Kurt Deutsch, and Janet Brenner.
