After making her directorial debut with Pitch Perfect 2, Elizabeth Banks will follow that up with…Pitch Perfect 3.
Variety broke the news that Banks will be coming back to direct the third installment of acapella going-ons. Banks also had supporting roles in the first two films.
Also signed on are Anna Kendrick, Rebel Wilson and Brittany Snow.
Banks is still weighing other options on her plate, as she also has been attached to the film Red Queen, which is also at Universal, and the Charlie’s Angels reboot at Sony.
Kay Cannon, who wrote the first two films. will return to pen the tertiary installment.
Pitch Perfect 3 was set for a July 2017 release, but with the indefinite delay of Pacific Rim 2, we’ll get to see the Barden Bellas return on August 4, 2017.
