When we talked yesterday about Katey Sagal joining the cast of Pitch Perfect 2, we mentioned that security around the rehearsal space for the a Capella sequel is tight. But there’s always a way when one of the film’s stars – in this case Rebel Wilson – is permitted to tweet a picture of the main cast. So here’s the first look at Wilson, Anna Kendrick, director Elizabeth Banks and the rest.
Yes, the Barden Bellas are well and truly back. With shooting set to kick off shortly, Kendrick, Wilson, Brittany Snow, Hana Mae Lee, Ester Dean, Alexis Knapp and new recruit Hailee Steinfeld sporting team colours in the rehearsal space the cast is using to perfect their sound and movement.
What the picture does not provide is anything about the plot, though it’ll naturally follow Beca (Kendrick), Amy (Wilson) and the others as they go through their senior year at Barden University. What problems will crop up? Well, Adam DeVine is back as former Treble Maker Bumper Allen, so everything won’t go perfectly. And Steinfeld’s expected to bring the outsider’s perspective that Beca provided last time.
With Banks directing this one from original writer Kay Cannon’s script, Universal has Pitch Perfect 2 dated for May 15 next year both here and in the US.
