Story by Jack Foley

ANNA Kendrick and Rebel Wilson have both agreed to reprise their roles for Pitch Perfect 3.

Universal has set a US release date of Friday, July 21, 2017, for the three-quell following the global success of the sequel, which has taken $259.7 million worldwide to date since opening in May.

Kay Cannon, who wrote the first two instalments, is in talks to write the third film. But as yet, no director has been confirmed. Elizabeth Banks, one of the sequel’s stars, directed the second film.

Prior to commencing work on the next film in the franchise, Kendrick, who plays Beca – one of the leaders of the Bellas – has The Accountant with Ben Affleck, Mr. Right with Sam Rockwell and Fox Searchlight’s Table 19 in various stages of development.

Wilson’s upcoming projects include spy spoof Grimsby and ensemble film How To Be Single.
