Elizabeth Banks to direct Pitch Perfect 2

The Glee-tastic a capella comedy Pitch Perfect is moving ahead with a sequel and has a rather surprising director attached.

Actress Elizabeth Banks – who had a small part in the first film – has been confirmed to make her directorial debut with the follow-up.

The Hollywood Reporter first broke the news, and quote Universal Pictures chairman Donna Langley as saying: "Elizabeth originated the idea for Pitch Perfect and was instrumental in making the first film such a huge success.

“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 2 .”

There has been no official word on which cast members will return, but Anna Kendrick, Rebel Wilson and Skylar Astin are all expected to come back for the sequel.
