Anna Kendrick of Pitch Perfect fame will soon add 'author' to her repertoire of successes. The actress is set to pen a book of personal essays that will be published in about a year and a half.

On Thursday, Touchstone announced that Kendrick has a new deal for a collection of autobiographical essays. The publisher, an imprint of Simon & Schuster, says the book is as yet untitled and is scheduled to be released for sale in the fall 2016.

Anna Kendrick released a statement regarding her upcoming publication, joking that it was her chance to demonstrate her "ineptitude, pettiness, and the frequency with which" she embarrasses herself. That sounds like the perfect read for fans of the Pitch Perfect and Up in the Air star.

A new trailer was recently released for Pitch Perfect 2, and it features both Anna Kendrick and Rebel Wilson.

Anna Kendrick also appeared recently on the Lip Sync Battle stage alongside John Krasinski.

If Anna Kendrick hasn't begun writing her book of essays, she will certainly have some memorable experiences to share. Between her antics behind the scenes and on camera in Pitch Perfect 2, and her recent foray into lip sync performances, she has no doubt had lots of mishaps that resulted in a wealth of laughs.
