El­iz­a­beth to turn di­rec­tor again

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Leisure -

Hol­ly­wood ac­tordi­rec­tor El­iz­a­beth Banks (right) will re­turn to the di­rec­tor’s chair for the third in­stall­ment of hit mu­si­cal-com­edy fran­chise, Pitch Per­fect.

Ac­tors Anna Ken­drick, Brit­tany Snow and Rebel Wil­son are on board to reprise their roles in the fran­chise, ac­cord­ing to The Hol­ly­wood Re­porter. Kay Can­non, who wrote the first two films, was the first per­son hired for the up­com­ing part. Banks is pro­duc­ing with her hus­band, Max Han­del­man, and Paul Brooks, pres­i­dent of an Amer­i­can pro­duc­tion com­pany. Banks made her di­rec­to­rial de­but with Pitch Per­fect which marked the high­est do­mes­tic open­ing ever for a first-time di­rec­tor. Since then, the ac­tor-pro­ducer has found a bud­ding ca­reer and has signed sev­eral projects, in­clud­ing the YA adap­ta­tion Red Queen and the re­boot of Char­lie’s An­gels.
