Universal just announced (and answered the prayers of many of us) at its CinemaCon presentation today that it indeed has plans to produce a “Pitch Perfect” sequel that would hit theaters sometime in 2015 (so we’re getting Finding Dory AND this? There is a God!). The announcement doesn’t come as too much of a surprise to anyone who’s been paying attention since the original hit the theatres.
The little movie that could earned $112 million worldwide against a slight $17 million budget, and in the months since its theatrical run, it has kept hitting new high notes. According to Universal, the film has earned over $90 million across all home market platforms, and it currently stands as the studio’s third highest-grossing VOD title ever.
Kay Cannon, who penned the original film will be in charge with writing the screenplay for the sequel, but no other cast or crew have been yet to be revealed though after an epic performance at this years MTV Movie Awards it would be crazy for the producers to not ask the cast back.
