The Barden Bellas “pitches” are back with more “aca-awesomeness”!
Titled “Pitch Perfect 2“, the film is a follow-up to American musical comedy film directed by Jason Moore. First released in 2012, the first “Pitch Perfect” film was very well-received by the critics and became a sleeper hit for earning over $113 million worldwide. It is also the 2nd highest grossing music comedy film, behind Richard Linklater’s “School of Rock” (starring Jack Black and Miranda Cosgrove).
Due to its commercial success, the co-star and producer of ‘Pitch Perfect” Elizabeth Banks is attached to direct the sequel. Screenwriter Kay Cannon has returned to pen the script of the sequel and the film is produced by Paul Brooks, Max Handelman and Banks.
Anna Kendrick’s Beca and the Barden Bellas gang have returned to star in the film but this time around, they are joined by two newcomers, Hailee Steinfield and Chrissie Fitt. American a cappella group, Pentatonix and German YouTube star, Flula Burg will appear in the film for unspecified role as well.
In the sequel, we will see the Bellas striving to compete in the World Championships of A Capella after winning the national championship in the first film. Watch the first official trailer of Elizabeth Banks‘ “Pitch Perfect 2” from The Ellen Show:
