Elizabeth Banks will direct Pitch Perfect 2.

The sequel to the 2012 hit musical comedy starring Anna Kendrick and Rebel Wilson will mark Banks’ directorial debut.

She acted in (and produced) the original movie.

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

As Gossip Cop previously reported, the movie is expected to be released next year.
