Anna Kendrick and Rebel Wilson sign on for Pitch Perfect 2

Lung-busting comedy sequel Pitch Perfect 2 looks to be fully up and running, with original stars Anna Kendrick and Rebel Wilson signing on to reprise their roles.

The confirmation was dropped by the film's Twitter feed, with the two stars officially on board to return as our favourite acapella singing stars.

The film will represent the directorial debut of Elizabeth Banks, who both produced and starred in the first outing, and will hopefully be reappearing in front of the camera too.

Nothing has been disclosed in terms of plot details, but assuming the sequel has the same kind of puppyish energy and razor sharp script as the first film, we should be in for a treat.

Original writer Kay Cannon is currently working on the screenplay, with further casting announcements expected in the coming weeks ahead of a US release date on 15 May 2015.
