Kendrick cast in Aniston's Cake

Anna Kendrick is among the stars to sign up for Jennifer Aniston's upcoming indie drama.

The Twilight actress has been cast in Cake, which Jennifer will both star in and executive produce, reported The Wrap.

A host of other actors have also joined the movie, including Sam Worthington, Chris Messina, Britt Robertson and Lucy Walters.

Real-life husband and wife William H Macy and Felicity Huffman have also been cast.

Jennifer will play a woman called Claire who becomes fascinated by the suicide of a lady (who will be played by Anna) in her chronic pain support group. Meanwhile, she also "grapples with her own very raw personal tragedy".

The Cake script was written by Patrick Tobin and was on the Black List of Hollywood's favourite unproduced screenplays.

Daniel Barnz will direct the movie, which is the first title of a five-film co-financing pact between After Dark Films and China-based TV producer Shenghua Entertainment.
