Briefly: It has a director and a release date, and now Pitch Perfect 2 has its biggest stars. In what was pretty much a no-brainer, Anna Kendrick and Rebel Wilson have both signed on to star in the a capella sequel already set to hit theaters on May 15, 2015. Co-star and producer Elizabeth Banks will make her directorial debut from a script by Kay Cannon.
In the first film, Kendrick and Wilson were the breakout stars. Having each sign to return was likely the most crucial dealmaking for the returning cast. With them locked in, things are full steam ahead. Aca-excellent. [The Hollywood Reporter].
