Randall Miller directed the film and co-wrote the script with Jody Savin. Miller and Savin’s Unclaimed Freight Productions is producing, along with former senior vp of Warner/Chappell Music Brad Rosenberger and this poster’s namesake, now known as Lisa Kristal Burgman.

Anna Kendrick is a newly-minted blonde bombshell. The 27-year-old Pitch Perfect actress recently dyed her hair blonde, but admits she’s still adjusting to her shocking transformation.
“Had to dye my hair for a film. Keep getting spooked when I pass reflective surfaces,” the former brunette joked on Twitter Tuesday, April 9. “Now I know how puppies feel.”
On April 11, she shared a black and white picture on Instagram of her long blonde hair concealing her face. She joked, “Debuting my new hair color in B&W in case any of my followers are colorblind. Or dogs.”
But the Oscar-nominated actress doesn’t plan to stay a blonde for long. She added, “So strange. Just until we wrap.”
Unfortunately, Kendrick’s new blonde ‘do may not be making its red carpet debut Sunday at the 2013 MTV Movie Awards. Though the cast of Pitch Perfect is set to join former costar and host of the show Rebel Wilson in a special opening act number, Kendrick may not be joining them.
A rep for the actress told the Huffington Post that Kendrick will not be attending because she’s filming The Last Five Years in NYC.
Taylor Lautner might have won the Best Shirtless Performance award at the 2013 MTV Movie Awards, but it wasn’t his rockin’ body that he was showing off on the awards show stage. Instead Lautner came up to accept his Golden Popcorn sporting a (fake) beer gut and slurping from a massive soda while admitting that his life has changed significantly since he turned 21.
“I’m just going to be real honest with you guys, I turned 21 recently I’ve been drinking a little bit, eating a little bit — a little too much drinking probably,” he said during his acceptance speech. When a photo of him in all his shirtless glory appeared behind him, Lautner added, “That picture was actually taken a few years ago. Those were the good old days. You could actually bounce a quarter off those things.”
He continued, “But in all seriousness, for us shirtless actors out there this is like winning an Oscar. … This is as high as it gets. This is the shirtless Oscar for all of us who have to take our shirts off — McConaughey, Tatum, Lena Dunham — this is it.”
This was the only award that “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 2″ was nominated for and won at the 2013 MTV Movie Awards.
And another celebrity gets the chop! Nikki Reed debuted her stylish new lob (long bob) Wednesday night, April 10, at the 3rd Annual Coach Evening to Benefit Children’s Defense Fund at Bad Robot in Hollywood.
The previously long-tressed Twilight actress spoke to Us Weekly about her decision to cut off “at least a foot,” she estimates, of her hair. “I’m doing a new movie, and although the role doesn’t require a short hair change, it’s something totally different than anything else I’ve done and I wanted to look and feel like a different person,” she tells Us.
The 24-year-old star normally entrusts her haircuts and color to her mom, a hairdresser, but for this makeover, she called in a neutral party, stylist Mara Roszak. “I called Mara and was like, I need to do something really drastic, but I don’t want my mom to cut it because if something goes wrong, I don’t want to hate my mom. She totally got it and I’m so happy.”
Unfortunately, the actress, who’s married to American Idol alum Paul McDonald, wasn’t able to donate her chopped locks. “They wouldn’t let me. My hair is super processed, I guess, from years of being bleached and dyed,” she explains.
Reed isn’t the only star to be enamored with the mid-lenth haircut. In January, the New York Times declared model Karlie Kloss’ chin-length ‘do “the haircut of the year.” Shortly after, Nicole Richie debuted a new choppy lob, and in March Naomi Watts had her hair cut into a classic bob.

Another birthday together! Kristen Stewart turned 23 on Tuesday, April 9 and boyfriend Robert Pattinson was by her side to help her celebrate.
The Twilight costars and real-life couple of over three years were spotted at the Mexican restaurant Malo in L.A.’s Los Feliz neighborhood with a group of nearly 40 friends, including Spring Breakers actress Ashley Benson, X17 reports.
Stewart kept the dress code casual in jeans, a black zip-up hoodie and sneakers. Pattinson, 26, followed her lead by wearing a black jacket, gray hoodie, jeans and sneakers.
The twosome appeared to be in good spirits as they were seen exiting a car together. The birthday girl was also snapped with a big smile on her face while walking arm-in-arm with a female friend.
After countless outings with girlfriend Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson spent some quality time with the boys this weekend.
But instead of a standard outing in Los Feliz, R.Pattz hung with quite the A-list crew in Los Angeles.
On Friday, the Twilight star went to the soft opening of The Larchmont restaurant with Joaquin Phoenix, Owen Wilson, Vince Vaughn and Florence Welch, where a source tells E! News, “It was mostly a boys’ night out.”
The famous friends were spotted laughing together while enjoying kale salad, pork belly, chicken under a brick and steak frites on the back patio of the restaurant. “The loved the food and had a great time,” an eyewitness tells E! News.
Rob’s ladylove—who has been constantly by his side since he returned from Australia—was also supposed to join the party, but ended up being unable to attend.
But R.Pazz didn’t let K.Stew’s absence ruin his night, and he headed to Parisian-themed bar Por Vous with the boys after the event.
Mistaken identity! Robert Pattinson and near-namesake Rob Patterson finally came face-to-face on Saturday, March 23 when they bumped into each other at Hollywood’s Chateau Marmont.
The 26-year-old Twilight actor and the 42-year-old guitarist (and Carmen Electra ex) shared a few laughs over Patterson always being confused for Pattinson.
“Rob was telling Rob from Twilight that everyone thinks he’s him so they talked about it,” a source tells Us Weekly. “Patterson told him how happy he was to finally meet Pattinson.”
The two were “hitting it off” until Patterson, who was previously engaged to Electra, wanted to capture their meet-up on camera and Pattinson declined.
“Rob from Twilight said, ‘No, I don’t like to take pictures. It feels like it takes a piece of my soul,’” the source recalls. “Everyone laughed at him and Rob Patterson was making fun of it all night.”
After meeting Patterson, Pattinson headed back to girlfriend Kristen Stewart and pal Katy Perry — his party guests for evening. Earlier that night, Stewart, 22, and Perry, 28, hung out together at the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards and even posed for a silly picture with Stewart sitting on the “Wide Awake” singer’s lap.

UPDATE: The LAFD confirms to E! that two dogs were recovered from the fire. One dog was deceased. The owner, which hasn’t been confirmed to be Greene, took possession of both dogs.
Meanwhile, the West Hollywood Sheriff’s office confirms that a candle initially started the fire. The fire was contained to the one unit and is still under investigation.
Ashley Greene’s West Hollywood condo caught fire earlier today.
While Los Angeles County Fire Department spokesman could not say that the apartment at the Granville Towers belonged to the Twilight actress, a source confirms to E! News that it is indeed Greene’s place.
The LAFD spokesman confirmed that three people complained of injuries and were treated on the scene. The individuals were told that they should go to the hospital, but chose not to.
The LAFD confirmed there were two dogs inside when the fire occurred; however, the status of the dogs’ health is not yet known.
In photos from inside Greene’s third-story condo, smoke damage can be seen covering the walls while debris is scattered around the floors. There’s also smoke damage on the outside of the building where smoke escaped from the windows. What caused the apartment fire is still unknown.
While we’re not totally sure if the 26-year-old star was home during the incident, Greene is in town. Just last night, she taped an episode for Daniel Tosh’s Comedy Central clip show Tosh.O.
Details are still coming in; more updates to come…
Forget those breakup rumors, Robsten fans! Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart have finally reunited after spending over two months apart.
A source tells Us Weekly that Pattinson, 26, flew back to L.A. on March 16 after filming The Rover in Australia for the past couple months. Since his arrival back in the States, Pattinson has been staying with his 22-year-old girlfriend at her home.
Proving their romance is still alive, the couple, however, were photographed by fans out together Tuesday, March 19 at karaoke bar. “I just ran into them at a karaoke bar by my house . . . mellow night,” a fan tweeted with a picture. “They were just there hanging out with a few friends.”
In the picture, Stewart smiled and flashed a peace sign while Pattinson showed off his freshly shaved head.
While her boyfriend was away filming, Stewart tried to keep herself busy by hanging out with her friends in L.A. The On the Road actress helped celebrate Twilight costar Taylor Lautner’s 21st birthday in early February and visited the batting cages with him just last week.
Stewart also attended the Academy Awards on Feb. 24, despite having to use crutches on the red carpet after injuring her foot. After completing her role as a presenter during the show, she cheered on pal Jennifer Lawrence from the audience when she won the Oscar for Best Actress.

Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner met up for an afternoon at the batting cages with friends in LA on Tuesday. Kristen arrived in a plaid shirt and cutoff shorts and sipped on a Red Bull, but later changed into a baseball tee and donned a helmet to show off her swing. When she wasn’t up to bat, she and a pal watched Taylor hit balls from a nearby bench. Kristen and Taylor have been spending time together while Robert Pattinson is busy filming Rover in Australia. The duo met up for a concert last week at The Troubador, where they were joined by Katy Perry’s assistant Tamra Natisin. Tamra has also become one of Kristen’s recent companions after the two caught a different LA show together earlier this month.
Kristen may be enjoying downtime while Rob is at work, but she’ll soon be back in the spotlight, since The Road is returning to theaters later this month. The movie, which was originally released last year, will be available again in select theaters and on demand starting March 22.
