Pitch Perfect’s Anna Camp & Brittany Snow Team Up for ‘Milkshake’
We have known Anna Camp from several famous TV shows such as The Mindy Project, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, The Good Wife, and Good Girls Revolt. Though, the actress rose to prominence for her role as the ambitious leader of the women’s Acapella group in Pitch Perfect. She starred alongside Brittany Snow in the Pitch Perfect movie series. Now, the old co-stars are teaming up for another movie project: Milkshake.
What is Milkshake About?
The movie focuses on a young girl that is trying to grow up whilst also seeking her mother’s approval and validation. The mother, Natalie, will be played by Anna Camp. While the daughter, Donna, will be played by actress Shree Crooks.
This marks the directorial debut of Brittany Snow who has also written the script of the movie. When talking about the movie, she calls the story ‘semi-personal’:
I wrote Milkshake about two years ago, and it’s a short film that is a semi-personal story to me, but it’s also a story that I’ve heard through many different people with moms and daughters…. So I wrote it with the fact in mind that I wanted to direct it.
The inspiration for the movie stems from Snow’s need to show meaningful stories on the screen. The actress shared that she hopes that her work can help people in some way:
I think the inspiration behind it is making sure that stories that matter to me, or stories that I think are relevant in some way and maybe can help someone or connect with someone, are stories that should be told. There’s a part of my brain that says, “Who cares, and why does anyone need to see this?” But then the other side of my brain is saying that maybe I should just do it, because it’s a creative outlet and maybe it will touch or help somebody.
Anna Camp Delighted to Be In The Movie
Anna Camp and Brittany Snow starred together in both Pitch Perfect 1 and 2 alongside Anna Kendrick and Skylar Astin.
Camp promoted the movie on her Instagram page, expressing that she misses working with her talented friend:
Interestingly enough, Snow had a hard time figuring out the perfect role for her old co-star and friend. She didn’t want Anna Camp to play the role of a mother to a 12-year-old because she’s not that old. However, they ultimately decided to have her play Donna:
It was really fun. It was a lot of talk at the beginning that she wasn’t going to be the mom character, because I didn’t want her to have to play a mom to a 12-year-old, because she’s not that much older than me, and I don’t want to play a mom to a 12-year-old. We went back and forth, but then it finally was decided that there’s no one better to play that part, and there’s no one better that I can work with than her. We worked so well together and had so much fun, and I think she’s the most talented actress.
