Max Landis has struck again.

The prolific writer's latest script, "Mr. Right," has attached Anna Kendrick and Sam Rockwell to star and Paco Cabezas to direct, TheWrap has confirmed. The film, a romantic caper, features Kendrick as a woman who finally thinks she has found the perfect man — only to learn that the titular Mr. Right, played by Rockwell, is a reformed hit man with a past that won't stay buried.

That small wrinkle, of course, causes quite a few problems in their relationship.

"The sheer amount of dancing in this movie is bonkers," Landis told TheWrap.

Shooting begins in the fall. Landis is currently in production on another caper he wrote, "American Ultra," starring Jesse Eisenberg and Kristen Stewart. His "Frankestein," starring James McAvoy and Daniel Radcliffe, is in post-production, as is Landis' directorial debut.

Kendrick is in production on "Pitch Perfect 2."
