Anna Kendrick and Rebel Wilson are definitely back in for “Pitch Perfect 2!” I hope you Pitch Perfect fans are ready for more cup action and horizontal running
The actresses will reprise their roles as Becca and Fat Amy in the musical comedy. The movie will be directed by actress Elizabeth Banks, which will mark her directorial debut. The actress had a role in the first movie and co-produced the film.
Kendrick confirmed that she had signed on to the sequel on Thursday, Feb. 6 and said, “I mean I’ve signed on with no script, so you know, if it becomes about para-sailing instead of singing, don’t blame me!”
Wilson also confirmed the news on Twitter on Thursday.”
Even the official Twitter account for the film wrote about the news and tweeted a photo with the caption, “RT if you can’t wait! @AnnaKendrick47 & @RebelWilson are back in #PitchPerfect2!!”
“Pitch Perfect” premiered in September 2012, starring Kendrick, Wilson, Skylar Astin, Brittany Snow and Adam Devine. The film followed the lives of college students in battling a capella groups (the Barden Bellas and the Treblemakers), all vying for the championship title in the national ICCAs competition. So the question is: Who will get the first solo?
The movie was a sleeper hit and earned just over $113 million worldwide. It also spawned a hit soundtrack, featuring a capella versions of popular songs as well as the track “Cups,” which was performed by Kendrick. The song reached No. 6 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart.
The only downside? Pitch Perfect 2 is set to hit theaters May 15, 2015.
