Elizabeth Banks To Direct ‘Pitch Perfect 2’
Get ready a cappella/E-Banks/comedy fans, actress Elizabeth Banks will reportedly make her feature directorial debut with Pitch Perfect 2, the sequel to Universal’s surprise comedy hit from 2012.
Banks, who co-starred and produced the original will return to the sequel in the same role, as wise-cracking a cappella color commentator Gail, according to Hollywood Reporter.
The website also state, stars Anna Kendrick and Rebel Wilson may return for the sequel as well. Former 30 Rock scribe Kay Cannon, who wrote Pitch Perfect (adapted from the book by Mickey Rapkin) is also writing the sequel. If Perfect 2 is anywhere near as good as the first, the writing staff here at Podaholics will be humming annoying a cappella tunes until the end of time.
Check out the trailer to Pitch Perfect above.
