“Pitch Perfect” actor Skylar Astin says Universal is already developing a sequel to this year’s college acapella musical comedy which received good reviews and $76 million in box-office from a $17 million budget.
Astin tells Movieweb that “I do have a meeting with a Universal representative next week. And I know that Rebel Wilson had hers last weekend. It’s definitely a talking point.”
One issue will be the song choices. Because these movies are shot months out, song selection is a tricky thing as the numbers have to be relevant around the time it hits cinemas. Astin says: “If we film this next year, and it doesn’t come out for another year and a half, will that song still be popular? Will it be over played? I think they did such a perfect job. The music landed so perfectly when it came out the first time, I can’t imagine, if the same people are involved, that lightning won’t strike twice. I will sing whatever they want me to sing.”
