Universal Pictures and Gold Circle, which just set Elizabeth Banks to helm Pitch Perfect 2, has signed the two core performers in the original sleeper, making deals with Anna Kendrick and Rebel Wilson to reprise. The film will be released May 15, 2015. The original spawned “Cups”, a single that made Kendrick a triple platinum recording artist with combined sales of a little less than 3 million units. Kendrick just wrapped Into The Woods for Disney. Wilson has been on fire since the breakout turn in Bridesmaids and Pitch Perfect. She stars in her ABC series creation Super Fun Night, Night At The Museum 3, She’s F***ing Perfect and Kung Fu Panda 3 and hosted the 2013 MTV Movie Awards. Kay Cannon is back writing the sequel and Paul Brooks is producing with Banks and Max Handelman. Universal’s Peter Cramer is overseeing.
