Anna Kendrick & Rebel Wilson Are Coming Back For 'Pitch Perfect 2'

Let's be honest, no one is surprised by this news: Universal announced on Thursday that Anna Kendrick and Rebel Wilson will reprise their roles in the upcoming sequel to "Pitch Perfect." Elizabeth Banks is set to direct the new film from a script by original writer Kay Cannon.

"Pitch Perfect 2" was announced back in January. When HuffPost Entertainment spoke with Kendrick shortly after the news broke, she played coy about her involvement. "I wish I knew. I wish there was a script," Kendrick said. "But I really do [want to be in it]. I’m like banging down the doors."
