Anna Kendrick and Rebel Wilson will reprise their roles for the film. This will be the directorial debut for Banks who is 39. Banks produced and co-starred in the first film.
Donna Langley, Universal's head honcho had this to tell THR.
"She brings an enormous amount of energy and experience to everything she works on, and we're thrilled that she is making her feature directorial debut on Pitch Perfect 2."
Banks' husband, producer Max Handelman, and screenwriter Kay Cannon will be involved with the sequel. The first film was directed by Jason Moore.
The movie was a surprise hit at the box office, bringing in more than a $100 million. On DVD and CD releases, the film has generated over $150 million dollars.-DocFB
Diagnosis: Banks can't screw this up like "Scrubs" and "30 Rock"...right?
Attention Robert Pattinson and uni-brow lovers!~
There is a Vancouver Craigslist ad for the major motion picture which was figured out by Twilight fan sites as being for the Twilight Sequel, "New Moon". The Vancouver Sun found out before anyone about the ads which were for 3 different cities.
Casting is to be held in Vancouver, Victoria and Kelowna. Ones who look the part will get scripts and will come back later in the day to read for a part. Aikins/Cossey is seeking First Nation or Aboriginal actors between 15 and 25 years of age. These are for speaking parts and not just ordinary background or extra crap work.
