Universal Pictures is moving forward} with Pitch Perfect 3, bringing Pitch Perfect and Pitch Perfect 2 writer Kay Cannon back to write the third installment. It isn't known yet if Elizabeth Banks, who made her directorial debut with Pitch Perfect 2, will be back to direct. The sequel has taken in over $250 million worldwide so far, after a whopping 70.3 million opening weekend at the box office.
Franchise star Rebel Wilson revealed back in April, weeks before Pitch Perfect 2 hit theaters, that Pitch Perfect 3 was happening, and that she would reprise her role as Fat Amy. It isn't known if Anna Kendrick or the rest of the Barden Bellas will be back, but this new report claims it will cost the studio a lot more money if they all retunr. Neither Anna Kendrick or Rebel Wilson have deals in place for a third movie, and they would likely get a big raise from their $2 million salaries for Pitch Perfect 2.
When Hailee Steinfeld joined the cast last year, it was reported that the plan was to have her star in future sequels, with the actress believed to be already signed on for Pitch Perfect 3 and two more follow-ups. Since many of these collegiate singers graduated in Pitch Perfect 2, it isn't known how the story will continue at this time, but Pitch Perfect 3 is most certainly happening. Who would you like to see join the cast of Pitch Perfect 3?
