Elizabeth Banks will make her feature directorial debut with PITCH PERFECT 2, which revolves around competitive acapella singing. She produced the first one and had a small role, which she will reprise in the sequel. The plot is still being kept under wraps but it’s believed that both Anna Kendrick and Rebel Wilson will return. I’m a little disappointed that didn’t follow the “Die Hard” rule of sequel titling by going with “Pitch Perfecter.” Although, there’s still time.
Kay Cannon is also returning to pen the sequel. Producing will be Banks, Paul Brooks and Max Handelman while Cannon and Jeff Levine will co-produce.
Banks was last seen in “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” and will reprise her role in “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Parts 1 & 2.” She’ll next be seen in “Walk of Shame” and heard in “The Lego Movie.”
She is repped by UTA.
