Elizabeth Banks is Directing 'Pitch Perfect 2'!

Elizabeth Banks is set to make her feature film directorial debut with the highly anticipated movie Pitch Perfect 2, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The 39-year-old actress will also be returning to star in the film in some sort of capacity alongside original film stars Anna Kendrick and Rebel Wilson, who are likely to return.

Elizabeth originated the idea for Pitch Perfect and was instrumental in making the first film such a huge success,” Universal Pictures chairman Donna Langley said. “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.”

Kay Cannon, who wrote the first smash hit movie, will be writing the sequel as well. Elizabeth and her husband Max Handelman will produce the film once again.
