‘Pitch Perfect 3’ Movie Update: Anna Kendrick May No Longer Return in the Sequel as a Barden Bella
“Pitch Perfect 2” recently took the theatres by storm and fans are already expecting for a sequel, “Pitch Perfect 3” to take place in the near future. Will Anna Kendrick reprise her role as Beca if production for the sequel is set in motion? Read on to learn more about this scoop.
“Pitch Perfect 2” has already received a total of $250.7 million earnings in domestic and foreign releases as of writing. It has been widely known that the success of the movie will determine if a sequel will be set in motion.
While “Pitch Perfect 3” is almost a foregone conclusion given these figures, there are rumors that the sequel may no longer feature its lead actress, Anna Kendrick. Kendrick, who plays Beca in the “Pitch Perfect” franchise has previously expressed her concerns about reprising her role for “Pitch Perfect 2.”
Cinema Blend cited that the 29-year-old actress did not seem excited when news about “Pitch Perfect 2” came to light. Kendrick also revealed her thoughts on reprising her role if ever a sequel takes place.
“I’m not one to count my chickens, so I just want to see how this one does and find out if there’s an appetite for that before I even think about it,” Kendrick said.
The outlet also noted that most of the characters in the movie are already nearing graduation at the end of the sequel, which means that these characters can no longer be members of the Barden Bellas.
Rebel Wilson, who plays Fat Amy, however, seemingly hinted how the movie could go on even with its core characters leaving college.
“All the Bellas are coming together becoming a legit singing group out of college. I also think a Fat Amy origins story would be awesome,” Wilson said.
Meanwhile, fans can almost expect for “Pitch Perfect 3” from happening in the near future, as director Elizabeth Banks told Access Hollywood that they’re already considering making the sequel to “Pitch Perfect 2.”
“We’re thinking about it, we’re thinking about it very seriously… We would love to spend more time with these characters that everyone’s fallen so hard in love with,” Banks shared.
