Broadway actress Anna Kendrick (“Rocket Science”) has signed on to star opposite Ben Stiller and Jason Schwartzman in “The Marc Pease Experience” for Paramount Vantage and Groundswell Prods. says The Hollywood Reporter.
Helmed by Todd Louiso, the film centers on Marc Pease (Schwartzman), a man ten years out of high school and still living in the past, when he was the star in his high school’s musicals.
During the course of one day, as Pease’s former teacher/mentor Mr. Gribble (Stiller) oversees the opening night of another show, Pease finally exorcises his demons and realizes there’s more to life than Broadway artistry.
Kendrick plays a high school senior romantically involved with both Schwartzman and Stiller’s characters. Jacob Koskoff and Louiso penned the screenplay.
