'Pitch Perfect 2' confirmed by Universal for 2015 release
After a hysterical live performance at the 2013 MTV Movie Awards on Sunday (April 14) and the release of a new music video for breakout soundtrack hit "Cups," featuring star Anna Kendrick, Universal Pictures has confirmed that "Pitch Perfect 2" will be released in 2015.
On Tuesday, Universal head Adam Fogelson announced the plans for the follow-up at CinemaCon in Los Vegas, revealing that original writer Kay Cannon will return to pen the screenplay. No other details were made available.
After a modest opening in October 2012, "Pitch Perfect" went on to earn $112 million worldwide against its $17 million budget. Universal notes that the film has earned over $90 million across all home market platforms, currently standing at the studio's third highest-grossing VOD title ever, just behind "Ted" and "Bridesmaids." Not only that, but the soundtrack has sold over 636,000 copies.
