We have some aca-awesome news about the upcoming Pitch Perfect sequel! Hunger Games actress Elizabeth Banks will take the helm as director of Pitch Perfect 2. As with the first Pitch Perfect, Elizabeth will both produce and co-star in the film.

Other confirmed cast and crew include Kay Cannon, who wrote the first film based on the book by Mickey Rapkin, and a couple of other returning producers.

No word yet on whether stars Rebel Wilson (Fat Amy) or Anna Kendrick (Beca Mitchell) will be returning.

An ensemble musical comedy, 2012's Pitch Perfect follows the all-female a capella group at Barden University, the Barden Bellas as they sing their way through the ranks of musical competitions. At the center of the story is Beca, a reluctant college student bent on launching her musical career, and aspiring film score composer Jesse Swanson (Skylar Astin).
