Earlier in the month, we heard the great news that Anna Kendrick would be lending not only her acting skills but also her singing talents to a forthcoming indie film, Pitch Perfect, that is about a group of a cappella singers.

We’ve now got more news to add to the story, courtesy of THR, with the casting getting a little bit bigger with the addition of Brittany Snow to the singing group.

Snow’s name might not be one that you know very well, having her best known credits currently include 2007’s Hairspray and 2006’s John Tucker Must Die, but I thought she was terrific in her single episode as the young Lily Rhodes in Gossip Girl, and with a new film, Syrup, co-starring Amber Heard in post-production, and a lead role on TV’s Harry’s Law, which was nominated for two Emmys this year, she looks to be a rising star in years to come, and Pitch Perfect is certainly a film that I’m looking forward to. It will be,

“the story of an all-girls college a cappella group trying to rebuild with a shaky rookie in the lead so they can take on the all-guys championship team. Snow will play Chloe, a somewhat rigid personality who finds her spot in the group.”

Avenue Q’s Jason Moore will be taking directing duties, from a script by Kay Cannon, producer and writer of the very popular TV series, 30 Rock. Filming is set to start mid-October in Louisiana, and hopefully everything will run smoothly from there. Kendrick is a brilliant rising actress, making a great name for herself in recent years, and I’m really looking forward to seeing her and Snow singing on the same team.
