'Pitch Perfect 3' Cast News: Anna Camp Returning To Sequel, How Will Aubrey Fit In New Storyline? [VIDEO]
The musical comedy franchise has signed on another of its stars for the third installment
The Barden Bellas will be able to add another alum to their ranks in the third Pitch Perfect movie!
Anna Camp, who starred as Aubrey Posen, the group's leader, in the first film, and reprised her role in the second as the owner of a retreat, has signed on to reprise the role once again in the third installment of the musical comedy franchise.
The Hollywood Reporter confirmed the casting news.
The third installment will also see the returns of Anna Kendrick as Beca, Rebel Wilson as Fat Amy, Brittany Snow as Chloe, Hailee Steinfeld as Emily, and according to IMDb, Alexis Knapp as Stacie. It's unclear if Elizabeth Banks will reprise her role as Gail, after she stepped back and opted to no longer direct the film after it was pushed back to a December 2017 release date, something she felt conflicted with her responsibilities as a parent.
Nothing much has been disclosed about the film's plot, though it is likely to pick up on the Bellas' lives following their graduation from Barden University in the second film from 2015. Not only did they all finish school at the university, but they went on to win the World A Capella Championships, which got them reinstated in the National Circuit following an embarassing performance for President Obama on his birthday, where Fat Amy accidentally flashed her crotch.
Camp's character had already graduated from the school in the second film and ran a retreat the Bellas went to in order to get their mojo back as a group. It is unclear if she will still be doing that in the third film.
Outside of the set, Camp recently married her co-star from the film, Skylar Astin, who portrayed Jesse, Beca's boyfriend. The two married in September of this year at a vineyard in Santa Ynez, California. Wilson, Banks and Snow were all in attendance.
