“We don’t do anything with dignity, okay?” Rebel Wilson’s “Fat Amy” (her ball cap reads “Make America Eat Again”) says in this first trailer for Pitch Perfect 3, and fans wouldn’t expect otherwise.
The third and final of the Pitch Perfect films, PP3 reunites the cast as well as characters: Returning are Anna Kendrick, Rebel Wilson, Hailee Steinfeld, Brittany Snow, Anna Camp, Hana Mae Lee, Ester Dean, Alexis Knapp, Chrissie Fit, Kelley Jakle, Shelley Regner, Elizabeth Banks and John Michael Higgins. Joining the original cast are DJ Khaled and Ruby Rose for special cameo appearances.
Having graduated from college and finding the non-singing world a depressing place – service jobs and bull-tending apparently not being all they’re cracked up to be – the a cappella Bellas reunite for a USO competition in Europe, where they’ll once again sing off against wealthy millennials who this time even play their own instruments and write their own songs.
Recently Elizabeth Banks pulled out of directing Pitch Perfect 3 –having steered Pitch Perfect 2 to box office success. The movie has been without a director, with Jason Moore the director of the original also unable to return.
The third instalment has been delayed slightly due to this and to allow more time to get the script written, and for the assorted mechanics of the movie to be put in place. As such, Pitch Perfect 3 is now going to arrive in December 2017. And what’s more, it’s got itself a new director.
Trish Sie, who helmed Step Up All In, as well as music videos for Ok Go, is set to take the job on and is again produced by Paul Brooks of Gold Circle Entertainment and Max Handelman & Elizabeth Banks of Brownstone Productions, and is written by Kay Cannon.
