The Hollywood Reporter announced Monday that “Pitch Perfect” star Elizabeth Banks will make her directorial debut with a sequel to the 2012 surprise hit.

The original “Pitch Perfect” starred Anna Kendrick, Anna Camp, Brittany Snow and Rebel Wilson as members of a college a capella group. Banks appeared with John Michael Higgins in the film as color commentators during the singing competitions.

“Elizabeth originated the idea for ‘Pitch Perfect’ and was instrumental in making the first film such a huge success,” Universal Pictures chairman Donna Langley told THR. ”She brings an enormous amount of energy and experience to everything she works on and we’re thrilled that she is making her feature directorial debut on ‘Pitch Perfect 2.’”

Banks is expected to reprise her role as Gail in the sequel, which is scheduled for release in 2015. Anna Kendrick and Rebel Wilson will also appear in their respective roles.
