Fat Amy really put it best when she said, "Even though some of you are pretty thin, you all have fat hearts, and that's what matters." The first "Pitch Perfect" was packed with so much heart, sass and fun times had by all. Following the wonderful news that Elizabeth Banks is going to direct the "Pitch Perfect" sequel, we now have our first two casting confirmations. Anna Kendrick and Rebel Wilson, although were expected to return, have now officially been locked in.
Kay Cannon, who scribed the first film, is back to pen the sequel as well. Banks not only had a small but wonderful role in the first film, but she also was on as a producer. She was big reason why the first film happened in the first place, so I'm really looking forward to seeing her make her directorial debut with this. I really like consistency, with sequels especially, and having four of the main players back is a great start.
The first film grossed $113 million on a budget of only $17 million. It was so fresh and clever and packed with a lot of talented actors that can actually sing. I literally couldn't count how many times I've seen the first film and it has cemented itself as one of my favorite comedies of all-time. I can't wait to see what new adventures are in store for the Barden Bellas.
