The film stars Braff as a struggling actor and father who tries to find purpose to his life. Kendrick will play a woman named Janine who Braff’s brother (played by Josh Gad) begins falling for. Mandy Patinkin and Jim Parsons will also star in the pic, which is being produced by Stacey Sher and Michael Shamberg.
Kendrick, who becomes increasingly popular with every performance she puts on, starred in last year’s hit films “End of Watch” and “Pitch Perfect” and will next be seen in Joe Swanberg’s comedy “Drinking Buddies”.
She is repped by CAA.
