Pitch Perfect 3: Musical-comedy sequel Pitch Perfect 2 has grossed $250 million worldwide, on top of the first film's haul of more than $115 million, so it's no surprise that Pitch Perfect 3 is indeed on its way, confirming a previous report. Kay Cannon (above left), who wrote the first two movies, is in negotiations to write a script for the next installment. Previously, Rebel Wilson said she was signed up already, although a new report claims Hailee Steinfeld, who co-starred in Pitch Perfect 2 (above right with director Elizabeth Banks), is the only cast member confirmed for another sequel.
