Elizabeth Banks to Direct Pitch Perfect Sequel

by at .  Updated at . Comments

It's early, but the much-anticipated Pitch Perfect sequel is already hitting the right notes.

That's because it has tapped THG favorite Elizabeth Banks as director: the hilarious actress is set to get behind the camera for the first time in order to bring this musical follow-up to life.

Banks and husband Max Handelman will also produce Pitch Perfect 2 - and you can watch Pitch Perfect online in order to be reminded of just why everyone cannot wait for the sequel to drop.

“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 in a statement, adding.

“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.”

Look for the 39-year to reprise her role as an announcer in the sequel and look for it to be released some time in 2015.

We simply can't wait.
