Due to its sharp characters and witty dialogue, the musical comedy’s popularity helped spawned a sequel earlier this year, with Hailee Steinfeld portraying Emily, a legacy and a new member of Barden Bellas.
And now, it seems like more aca-awesomeness will be coming our way as The Hollywood Reporter confirmed that the 3rd “Pitch Perfect” movie will move forward at Universal Pictures.
Sources told THR that screenwriter Kay Cannon, who wrote the first 2 “Pitch Perfect” films, is currently in negotiations with Universal and Gold Circle to return for the 3rd film. Elizabeth Banks produced, directed, and co-starred in the 2nd film, but it remains unclear whether she will return to helm the project.
The announcement regarding the new sequel came after Rebel Wilson confirmed to LA Times reporter Amy Kaufman that she will once again portray Fat Amy in the 3rd movie. However, option isn’t in place for Wilson yet. Sources said that the deal may come off costly as both Wilson and Anna Kendrick made $2 million each for the 2nd film, which recently grossed $160.9 million in the US box office.
Even though no plot details were released, the film will most likely revolve around the life of Steinfeld’s character in the college campus. She is also the only Barden Bella in the Barden University as all the other Bellas have graduated and started new lives by the end of “Pitch Perfect 2”.
