Anna Kendrick To Star In STOWAWAY

Anna Kendrick has signed on for the sci-fi thriller STOWAWAY, the second film from the duo behind the Cannes Official Selection Arctic. As with Arctic, the film will be directed by Joe Penna and co-written by Penna & Ryan Morrisson. Morrison will also serve as executive producer. XYZ Films will produce alongside Rise Pictures and augenschein Filmproduktion, with XYZ and CAA Media Finance handling financing and sales at the upcoming American Film Market.

Shortly after takeoff, the crew of a spaceship headed to Mars discovers an accidental stowaway. Too far from Earth to turn back and with resources quickly dwindling, the ship’s medical researcher (Kendrick) emerges as the only dissenting voice against the group consensus that has already decided in favor of a grim outcome.

Kendrick, who is best known for her Oscar-nominated role in Up in the Air and as the lead of the Pitch Perfect franchise, can currently be seen in theaters in the thriller A Simple Favor.

Joe Penna, who became one of YouTube’s early stars through his MysteryGuitarMan channel, transitioned seamlessly into filmmaking with his feature directorial debut, Arctic. The film, which stars Mads Mikkelsen, premiered as part of the Official Selection at this year’s Cannes Film Festival. North American rights were acquired by Bleecker Street Media (Collette, Disobedience, Captain Fantastic).

Stowaway marks the second collaboration between XYZ and Penna and Morrison following Arctic. XYZ will also continue sales at AFM on a number of titles including Synchronic, starring Anthony Mackie and Jamie Dornan, The Silencing starring Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Titan starring Lily Collins, and Vivarium starring Imogen Poots and Jesse Eisenberg.

Enter For A Chance To Win Passes To See MA On May 28th at 7:30 PM In DALLAS.

Everybody's welcome at Ma's. But good luck getting home safe.

Oscar winner Octavia Spencer stars as Sue Ann, a loner who keeps to herself in her quiet Ohio town. One day, she is asked by Maggie, a new teenager in town (Diana Silvers, Glass), to buy some booze for her and her friends, and Sue Ann sees the chance to make some unsuspecting, if younger, friends of her own.

She offers the kids the chance to avoid drinking and driving by hanging out in the basement of her home. But there are some house rules: One of the kids has to stay sober. Don't curse. Never go upstairs. And call her "Ma."

But as Ma's hospitality starts to curdle into obsession, what began as a teenage dream turns into a terrorizing nightmare, and Ma's place goes from the best place in town to the worst place on earth.
