EXCLUSIVE: ‘Pitch Perfect 2’ in the Works; Rebel Wilson to Return

Pitch Perfect 2 in the works at Universal Pictures This past October saw the release of Universal Picture's Pitch Perfect, a musical comedy centering around collegiate Acapella groups. While the film took in a modest $63.9 million at the box office, it wasn't one of the biggest monetary hits of the year. But it proved to be one of the more original movies released in 2012, and has quickly gained a huge fan following, making it one of the few true cult films in recent memory. That cult is sure to grow even bigger as the film hits Blu-ray and DVD this week.

It makes sense that Universal would want a sequel, and possibly a franchise. We might have to wait and see how well the home video release does before we hear any official word on Pitch Perfect 2, but we recently talked with Skylar Astin about the possibilities for a sequel, and he revealed that he and star Rebel Wilson are in talks with Universal about a follow-up.

"I do have a meeting with a Universal representative next week. And I know that Rebel Wilson had hers last weekend. It's definitely a talking point."

He then talked about what he'd like to see in Pitch Perfect 2, and the music that might be featured.

"I think that I am willing to do anything. I like to collaborate. If my voice will be heard, than I will do some research and think about it. There are definitely times where I am listening to the radio, and I think, "That would be awesome. I would love to sing that." It's this weird karaoke fantasy that I might someday get to live out on the big screen. Then again, I know there are so many politics in that decision-making. Also relevance. If we film this next year, and it doesn't come out for another year and a half, will that song still be popular? Will it be over played? I think they did such a perfect job. The music landed so perfectly when it came out the first time, I can't imagine, if the same people are involved, that lightening won't strike twice. I will sing whatever they want me to sing."

We're excited about the possibility of Pitch Perfect 2. Are you? Or are you sick of the Glee-ification of American entertainment?

Pitch Perfect was released September 28th, 2012.

                    Just watched this movie 4 times after I first watched it yesterday. I don't like it because it's more to be LOVE than to like. My gosh every music is very catchy. Talked about it at school and sing all day long especially the riff off!. It must have been love! but it's over now!. Hahaha . I already miss fat amy becca aubrey and lily :DD .

                    Your a Ginger /jin-jah/ :DD

                              Since it left off with Becca in the end when the new ones are trying out then Pitch Perfect 2 should have her in it! You can't just stop one movie with her just beginning to run the group and then the next her not even in it! Thats crazy and i would love to some of the seniors from the last Pitch Perfect in the movie it would excite the audience to see that they are in the movie.

                                I would love to see a PP2! As long as it have Becca and Jamie in it! I want to see their relationship ... and some awesome music. I am not a GLEE fan or anything, I did enjoy this movie and Rock of Ages =)

                                        This is great news to my ears! i loved this movie. But i want to see where the jesse and becca story goes! It would be great to have a sequel, just as long as its the same cast list. Well.. Becca, Jesse, Fat Amy, Benji, Cynthia, Stacey and maybe not have the seniors (aubrey, chloe, bumper, donald) as members of the college/groups but they could appear in the audience? I'm happy as long as skylar astins in it!!
