Sie takes over from Elizabeth Banks, who directed 2015’s Pitch Perfect 2 that saw the highest grossing opening weekend ever for a movie musical. Pitch Perfect 3 will be headlined by returning stars Anna Kendrick and Rebel Wilson, with Paul Brooks of Gold Circle Entertainment and Max Handelman & Elizabeth Banks of Brownstone Productions producing. The script is by Kay Cannon with Mike White writing the most recent draft. Universal VP of Production Sara Scott will oversee.
Sie’s film career began in 2006 with her music video “Here It Goes Again” for the band OK Go, with 2014’s Step Up All In marking her feature debut. She’s repped by UTA.
