Pitch Perfect star Anna Kendrick is set to star opposite Seven Psychopaths actor Sam Rockwell in Mr. Right.

The 28-year-old American actress and singer will play a hopeless romantic on the hunt for her dream man, according to Deadline.

However, just when Kendrick's character thinks that she has met her perfect partner (Rockwell), the truth begins to unravel and she soon finds herself learning about his dark past.

Paco Cabezas will direct the movie, while Chronicle screenwriter Max Landis will pen the script.

Kendrick can next be seen in Disney's Into the Woods, while Rockwell is to star in the reboot of Poltergeist next year.
