Sam Rockwell and Anna Kendrick have signed on to star in the comedy Mr. Right.

Max Landis wrote the screenplay, which follows a young woman (Anna Kendrick) who falls for the perfect man (Sam Rockwell), only to learn that he is actually a reformed hitman. When his dangerous past comes back to haunt him, their relationship is put to the ultimate test as they try to save one another.

Paco Cabezas (Tokarev) is directing, with Circle of Confusion's Lawrence Mattis and Rick Jacobs producing. Michael A. Helfant and Bradley Gallo's Amasian Entertainment will provide the financing, with Stephen Emery and Max Landis serving as executive producers. Production is scheduled to begin sometime this fall.

Sam Rockwell most recently starred in Trust Me and Marvel One-Shot: All Hail the King, and he will next be seen in The Eel and the Poltergeist remake. Anna Kendrick will next be seen in Life After Beth and Into the Woods, and she is about to go into production on Pitch Perfect 2.
