When it was announced a couple of weeks ago that Elizabeth Banks was set to make her directorial debut with Pitch Perfect 2, it was suggested the likes of Anna Kendrick and Rebel Wilson were likely to returns. However at the time no deals were in place. Now that’s changed, as it’s been announced both actresses will be back for another round of a capella singing, according to THR.
It still isn’t known if other Pitch Perfect stars, such as Skylar Astin, Ben Platt, Brittany Snow, Anna Camp or Alexis Knapp, will be coming returning. No story details have been revealed either.
The first film was a surprise success, earning $113 million worldwide from a $17 million budget, and taking in over $135 million from Blu-ray and DVD sales. Even the soundtrack, which featured Anna Kendrick’s triple-platinum single ‘Cups’, sold over 1 million units.
It’s not clear when the sequel will shoot, although Universal plans to have Pitch Perfect 2 in cinemas in 2015.
