“Pitch Perfect 2” arrives next month, and the story of a cappella, friendship, and slapstick won’t end there. Rebel Wilson confirmed to LA Times reporter Amy Kaufman that a third Pitch Perfect installment is in the works, and that Wilson will once again star.

“Pitch Perfect” is a 2012 American musical comedy film directed by Jason Moore. Featuring an ensemble cast, including Anna Kendrick, Skylar Astin, Rebel Wilson, Anna Camp, Brittany Snow, Ester Dean, Alexis Knapp, Hana Mae Lee, Adam DeVine, with John Michael Higgins, and Elizabeth Banks, the plot follows a college women’s a cappella group, The Barden Bellas, as they compete against another a cappella group from their college to win Nationals.
The film is loosely adapted from Mickey Rapkin’s non-fiction book, titled “Pitch Perfect: The Quest for Collegiate A Cappella Glory”, and it was released in September 2012.
“Pitch Perfect 2”, on the other hand, will centre on a story where The Barden Bellas return and are determined to enter a worldwide competition that an American group has never won in order to regain their status and right to perform. After an exposure mishap with Fat Amy and the president, the Bellas are more determined than ever to prove that a ragtag bunch of American girls can “run the world”.
There’s no word yet if Anna Kendrick will join the “Pitch Perfect 3” production, but she seems like a pretty integral part of the whole thing. How can you possibly have an a cappella battle without all the members of the a cappella group?
Meanwhile, catch “Pitch Perfect 2” when it comes out in a cinema near you on 14th May.
