With filming completed in 2012, and nothing heard about “Get A Job” since, it’s not a surprise that in 2014, Anna Kendrick said she didn’t think the movie would be released. “I don’t think it is,” the actress shared. “It’s like a mystery. It’s just never, ever, ever gonna see the light of day… It was two years ago, it was a very topical comedy thing. It was supposed to be we were fresh out of college… Dylan Kidd, he’s a great director. It’s crazy how that can happen.” Indeed, it’s unclear why the movie never even made it to a festival debut. Somewhat out of nowhere, though, it’s finally hitting the big screen, and the first trailer has arrived.
The cast alone makes it all the more baffling why “Get A Job” has remained on a shelf for four years. Miles Teller, Bryan Cranston, Alison Brie, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Marcia Gay Harden, John Cho, John C. McGinley, Nicholas Braun, Brandon T. Jackson and Jay Pharoah all feature in the film that follows a college grad and his pals whose post-school life is marked by the recession.
Dylan Kidd (“Rodger Dodger,” “P.S.“) hasn’t made a film since “Get A Job,” but here’s hoping that whatever happened behind the scenes, he can shake this off and get started on something new. “Get A Job” opens on March 25th.
