“Step Up All In” director and Ok Go music video director Trish Sie has been set to helm the third entry in the “Pitch Perfect” franchise at Universal Pictures.
Elizabeth Banks, who made her hit directorial debut with “Pitch Perfect 2,” had to back out of directing the third installment while the first film’s helmer Jason Moore was unavailable. Universal and Gold Circle launched an immediate hunt for a replacement and they’ve settled on Sie.
Anna Kendrick, Brittany Snow, Hailee Steinfeld and Rebel Wilson are set to return for the a cappella-centric movie which Mike White penned a new draft for over the Summer. It is now targeting a December 22nd 2017 release.
