Following the smash-hit success of 2012’s Pitch Perfect, which netted way over $100m. around the world and scooped a handful of awards along the way, the film’s original producer Elizabeth Banks is now set to make her feature directorial debut helming Pitch Perfect 2.

THR reports that Banks will helm the sequel to Universal and Gold Circle’s original hit musical-comedy, with insiders noting that Anna Kendrick and Rebel Wilson are likely to return.

Not only did the original do well at the box office, its soundtrack has gone on to break records since its release. Initially the sixth-highest best-selling album in 2012, it became the best-selling soundtrack of last year, and currently stands as the best-selling soundtrack in digital history, with Anna Kendrick’s song, Cups, impressively peaking at number 6 on the Billboard Hot 100 out in the Us, a feat rarely achieved by songs from the movies.
