The actress will show off her singing talent again following her recent appearance in Pitch Perfect, reports Moviehole.
Richard LaGravenese is to adapt and direct Jason Robert Brown's acclaimed stage show following his completion of Beautiful Creatures.
Kendrick will play struggling young actress Cathy.
The original stage show tells Cathy's story of romance and a failed marriage in reverse while the male lead's tale is told chronologically.
The pair only interact when their stories intersect in a wedding song halfway through the play.
Kendrick will next be seen in Get a Job and Rapturepalooza. Pitch Perfect, which has already been released in the US, will debut in UK cinemas on December 21.
