It certainly seems like it is Anna Kendrick's time to shine. The Tony and Academy Award nominee recently wrapped filming the screen adaptation of The Last Five Years and also is in talks to portray Cinderella in the film version of the Tony-winning musical Into the Woods. Kendrick (High Society, "Up in the Air," "Pitch Perfect, "Camp") also scored a pop hit with the song "Cups," and we think she could also score in the title role of Funny Girl.
