Elizabeth Banks will make her feature directorial debut when she takes the helm for Pitch Perfect 2, the sequel to the 2012 hit.
Banks moves into the directors chair after co-starring and producing the original musical comedy.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Universal Pictures Chairman Donna Langley remarked:
"Elizabeth originated the idea for Pitch Perfect and was instrumental in making the first film such a huge success
'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."
The first movie was a roaring success, grossing more than $115 million worldwide on a $17 million budget. Not too shabby. We'll look forward to seeing if this sequel performs as well. No pressure, Elizabeth.
