Hunger Games actress Elizabeth Banks will soon have to add the title of director to her resume. Apparently she will be directing the much-anticipated Pitch Perfect 2, the sequel to the 2012 comedy about hilarious singing competitions and even funnier competitors.
Banks played the female judge for the singing competition in that movie.
“Elizabeth originated the idea for Pitch Perfect and was instrumental in making the first film such a huge success,” said Universal Pictures chair Donna Langley.
“She 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.”

Rebel Wilson and Anna Kendrick haven’t signed on for the second movie, but I’m sure they’ll be singing high notes once they find out that Banks is directing.
