Elizabeth Banks is set to make her directorial debut with Pitch Perfect 2. Banks produced and co-starred in the first musical comedy which was released in 2012. Anna Kendrick and Rebel Wilson are also expected to reprise their roles, and I imagine they aren't the only ones who will return.
Pitch Perfect was a surprisingly fun movie, and my girls absolutely love it. They watch that movie just as much as they do some of the Disney ones. They even know several of the songs.
There's no information on what the sequel will be about, but the first movie centered on a freshman (Kendrick) who reluctantly joins a college acappella group and ends up taking them to the finals.
I'm sure Banks will do a fine job directing the sequel. The script was written by Kay Cannon, who also wrote the first film. Universal Pictures chairman Donna Langley had this to say in a statement,
"Elizabeth originated the idea for Pitch Perfect and was instrumental in making the first film such a huge success. She brings an enormous amount of energy and experience to everything she works on and we’re thrilled that she is making her feature directorial debut on Pitch Perfect 2.”
