Entertainment Weekly recently released a brand new still from the upcoming movie musical adaptation, The Last Five Years. This new still features Anna Kendrick and Jeremy Jordan as their characters Cathy Hyatt and Jamie Wellerstein.
The story follows Cathy, a struggling actress, and Jamie, a novelist who is beginning to gain some success with his writing. This musical is extremely unique and complex as Jamie’s story is told in chronological order, starting when they first meet, but Cathy’s story is told in reverse, starting at the end of their marriage.
The Last Five Years was written by Jason Robert Brown, has been performed off-Broadway, and has won several awards since it opened in 2001. Richard LaGravenese has been very involved with this adaptation as he is directing, screenwriting, and co-producing the project.
Currently, there is no official release date for the awaited film. However, production has finished and now they will be searching for distributors wanting to buy the film. Stay tuned for more updated information!
