Elizabeth Banks to direct Pitch Perfect 2

Elizabeth Banks is set to make her directorial debut with the sequel to the 2012 acapella smash, Pitch Perfect. Banks starred in and produced the first movie and will be replacing director Jason Moore. She will also return with an acting role. Along with Pitch Perfect you might have seen Banks in The Hunger Games, What to Expect When You're Expecting, 30 Rock, Scrubs, Zack and Miri Make a Porno, and The 40-Year Old Virgin. Her next release is The LEGO Movie in February.
Along with Banks' return, it has been described as "likely" for Anna Kendrick and Rebel Wilson to return as Beca and Fat Amy. Kay Cannon is also returning to write the script.

I personally was really surprised with Pitch Perfect. I watched it thinking the previews made it look kind of funny and when I walked away really loving it I was surprised. Hopefully the sequel will pack the same punch as the first one did and won't stretch things too far. I'm happy Elizabeth Banks has more of a part in this, too. She's quite the funny lady.
