Pitch Perfect 2 was actress and producer Elizabeth Banks' directorial debut. She planned to lead the shooting of the triquel in the future, but a few months ago Banks abandoned this idea due to the workload of the work schedule, and the director's chair of the project has been empty until now.|
As the information portal Variety found out, Universal quickly found a replacement for Banks in the person of Trish C . In the filmography of the latter, so far only the melodrama "Step Forward: All or Nothing" is listed, but the director managed to shoot several short films and music videos.
The Pitch Perfect franchise has been very successful for Universal . First, the first film earned $ 113 million at the world box office with a modest budget of $ 17 million by modern standards, and the sequel managed to raise $ 287.5 million . Anna Kendrick, Rebel Wilson and Brittany Snow will return to their roles in the third part, and Kay Cannon is writing the script.
Elizabeth Banks , in turn, will remain the producer of Pitch Perfect 3 and will reimagine Gail from the previous two installments. The premiere of the film is scheduled for December 22, 2017 .
