Fans of Pitch Perfect are pumped that Anna Kendrick is returning to reprise her role as Beca, the leader of the a cappella singing group, the Barden Bellas. Kenrick is just as pumped and doesn’t even seem to care about the plot.
“I’m very excited!” said Kendrick. “I mean I’ve signed on with no script, so you know, if it becomes about parasailing instead of singing, don’t blame me!”
The 28-year-old actress recently revealed her ideas of what fans might expect from the sequel.
“I can see it picking up in the year 3000 when we’re all cryogenically frozen,” she joked. “And our voices are digital and we’re breaking the sound barrier.”
Rebel Wilson and Elizabeth Banks will also reprise their roles in the sequel. Banks, who produced the first film which grossed $115 on a $15 million budget, has also signed on to direct the movie.
“I’m really excited to direct the girls,” Banks said in an interview with The Huffington Post. “The whole project speaks so much to me and to women and to making women funny in really fun and interesting ways and that’s what I’m most looking forward to. I’m looking forward to letting the girls let loose.”
Looking forward to @PitchPerfect 2? Here’s a #TBT vid to tide you over. Just me and Bellas @EsterDean & @hanamaelee. http://t.co/GkiKrnVLom

“[Banks] 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,” said Universal Pictures chair Donna Langley.
Banks revealed a few details about the script in the interview with The Huffington Post.
“All I can say right now is that they will be graduating seniors this time around, rather than incoming freshmen.”
Universal Pictures and Gold Circle Films say the film is slated to be released May 15, 2015.
Do you think there will be another hit like “Cups” in the sequel?
