Anna Kendrick and Rebel Wilson will return to reprise their roles in the Pitch Perfect movie franchise, Universal Pictures confirms.
The studio said Monday that Anna Kendrick and Rebel Wilson will star in Pitch Perfect 3, set for release in July 2017. Elizabeth Banks and her husband, Max Handelman, will return as producers.
It is unclear whether Banks will once again take the helm as director as she did for Pitch Perfect 2, which has taken in more than $171 million domestically since it opened last month.
The original film, released in 2012, was a surprise hit that went on to earn more than $115 million worldwide.
The franchise follows the comical and crazy adventures of a competitive a capella singing group.
