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].
Briefly: Who’s excited for Night At The Museum 3? Anyone? Anyone? I actually think the sequel improves on the original and the concept is certainly one that can easily continue on. For the third installment, Shawn Levy is back directing Ben Stiller, Robin Williams, Owen Wilson, Steve Coogan and Ricky Gervais, with the production aimed at a Holiday 2014 release date.
Now, there’s a new addition to the cast. Rebel Wilson, best known for Bridesmaids and Pitch Perfect, will play a security guard at the British museum at the center of the story. Downton Abbey‘s Dan Stevens was previously announced as well. [Deadline]
As usual, the MTV Movie Awards this year were pretty uneventful. The best bit happened right at the beginning when host Rebel Wilson got the majority of her Pitch Perfect co-stars to do an a capella opening. Yup, that’s right, the Barden Bellas and Treblemakers hit the MTV stage Sunday night to sing a medley of popular hits including Macklemore’s Thrift Shop, Eminem’s Lose Yourself and more.
Fans of the awesome 2012 film should really enjoy this. I know I did. Check it out below. Read More »

One of the best times I had in the theater all year was with Jason Moore‘s a capella musical comedy, Pitch Perfect. Starring Anna Kendrick and Rebel Wilson, the film had a high-energy pace, catchy tunes and an evil sense of humor that made it feel like Bring It On with singing. After turning a decent little theatrical profit, Pitch Perfect hit Blu-ray this week and with that comes news of a possible follow up. A ca-awesome!
In a new interview, the film’s male lead, Skyler Astin, said he has a meeting coming up to discuss a possible sequel and he believes Rebel Wilson took the meeting as well. “[A sequel] is definitely a talking point,” he said. Read more after the jump. Read More »
