Chris Morris has shot a secret new movie in the Caribbean starring Anna Kendrick and Denis O'Hare

Anna Kendrick is the star of a secret new Chris Morris film that was shot in the Caribbean this summer.

The 'Pitch Perfect' star posted a picture of herself on set an FBI uniform with body armour and carrying a rifle, in what is now believed to be a scene from the as-yet untitled-project, according to comedy news site Chortle.

Anna quipped: "Body army and guns are super heavy as it turns out."

The 'Trolls' actress will star alongside Kayvan Novak, stand-up comedian James Adomian and 'Orange is the New Black' star Danielle Brooks.

Kayvan appeared in Chris's last movie 'Four Lions' in 2010, a black comedy about a group of British Muslims plotting a terrorist attack.

Other cast includes 'True Blood' star Denis O'Hare, 'Bones' actor Pej Vahdat, stage actor Marchant Davis and Mousa Kraish, who plays the Jinn in 'American Gods'.

Little is currently known about the plot details of the movie.

Pej wrote on Instagram: "By far one of the best experiences of my life. This film is going to be absolutely epic and I can't wait for you all to see it."

Denis recently described Chris as a "wonderful, wacky British director".

Simon Blackwell, who co-wrote 'Four Lions', teased the storyline by saying: "I'm aware of what [Chris Morris is] cooking, but I can't show you the menu I'm afraid. He has an elite troop of killers who will come and get you. He's doing something marvellous, as you would expect."

Filming took place in Florida, the Dominican Republic capital of Santo Domingo and at Pinewood Studios' outpost on the island.

Chris's most recent work includes directing four episodes of 'Veep'.

He has suggested that his next project could be American and linked to a biopic of political strategist Lee Atwater, about the underhand tricks he used to get Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush elected. But Chortle reports this new film is not the Atwater story.

Moses (Davis) is the founder of the Star of Six, an ailing community farm and mission, who refuses to take his psych meds; Kendra (Kendrick) is the FBI agent tasked with making him look like a bona fide terrorist. Well-researched and yet madcap, Morris’ comedy is firmly on the side of the mentally ill, goofball outsider…
