Hat-trick for Kendrick, Swanberg

Anna Kendrick has reunited with director Joe Swanberg on his new film, Digging For Fire.

The Pitch Perfect star returned to work with her Drinking Buddies filmmaker on the movie, which has finished shooting, reported The Wrap.

Orlando Bloom, Jenny Slate and Mike Birbiglia have also joined the cast, which includes New Girl star Jake Johnson, Rosemarie DeWitt, Sam Rockwell and Brie Larson.

Details on Digging For Fire, which was written by Joe and Jake, have been kept under wraps, although Jake and Rosemarie have the leading roles.

It is the third time that Anna and Joe have collaborated, following their work on the improvised drama Happy Christmas and romantic comedy Drinking Buddies.

The actress previously said at the Sundance Film Festival, where Happy Christmas premiered: "Honestly, I would have done anything Joe asked me to do, but I was really excited about playing somebody who was a mess, who doesn't have a filter and is kind of selfish."

The 28-year-old actress, who will reprise her role as Beca Mitchell in Pitch Perfect 2, will next star as Cinderella in Disney's Into The Woods, which also stars Meryl Streep, Johnny Depp and James Corden.

Orlando, who returned to play Legolas in The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug and will be seen again in The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies, will next be seen in Zulu with Forest Whitaker and the medical thriller, The Good Doctor.
