Although Sie got her start as a choreographer, she has since made name for herself as an accomplished director of music videos, a number of which have gone viral. Pitch Perfect 3 will be Sie’s second foray into feature film-directing after the previously-mentioned Step Up.
Originally, the role of director was supposed to go to Elizabeth Banks, but the actress’s increasing commitments to other productions forced her to leave the project:
Anna Kendrick, Britanny Snow and Rebel Wilson have already been confirmed to headline the returning cast of Pitch Perfect 3. Additional talent is expected to be confirmed in the near future. Pitch Perfect 2, which was directed by Banks, also stars Hailee Steinfeld, Anna Camp, Alexis Knapp, Adam DeVine, Katey Sagal, Ester Dean, Kelley Jakle and Hana Mae Lee.
Kay Cannon, who scripted the first two franchise entries, is working on the script for the third film. An Emmy-nominated writer and actress with a heavy improv background, Cannon is also known for her work on NBC‘s 30 Rock and FOX‘s New Girl.
Although Banks will not serve as the Pitch Perfect 3 director, she’ll remain aboard the project as producer and, presumably, star. Also producing Pitch Perfect 3 are series fixtures Paul Brooks of Gold Circle Entertainment and Max Handelman of Brownstone Productions.
