‘Pitch Perfect 3’ Stars Rebel Wilson, Hailee Steinfeld Wrap Up Filming
The cast of “Pitch Perfect 3” recently wrapped up their filming for the upcoming sequel.
On her Instagram account, Rebel Wilson shared a short video of herself with the main cast of “Pitch Perfect 3” hugging each other in a circle. Wilson also gave her co-stars a pep talk, saying that this is not the end for the Barden Bellas. Ana Camp posted a GIF on her Twitter account giving fans a kiss on their last filming day. Hailee Steinfeld couldn’t hold her laughter when she was photographed with Ruby Rose and several other guest stars from “Pitch Perfect 3.” Steinfeld, who was a newbie in “Pitch Perfect 2,” posted the snap on her Instagram account.
As of late, details about the main plot for “Pitch Perfect 3” are still being kept under wraps. But Entertainment Weekly revealed earlier this year that the filming, rehearsals and production mostly took place in Atlanta. The core Bellas will also return to the third installment. This includes Anna Kendrick, Wilson, Brittany Snow, Camp, Ester Dean, Chrissie Fit, Hana Mae Lee and Steinfeld.
Elizabeth Banks, who produced the first film and directed the second, will reprise her role as a cappella judge and mentor Gail. However, Banks did not direct “Pitch Perfect 3.” She handed off helming duties to Trish Sie. John Michael Higgins is also expected to return as John Smith, but his photos on set have not yet been leaked online.
Unfortunately, two male cast members from “Pitch Perfect” 1 and 2 will no longer return. Skylar Astin and Ben Platt, who played two members of Treblemakers, won’t be back. Some new cast members for Season 3 include Rose, whose role is still being kept a secret. She will be joined by Andy Allo and John Lithgow.
“Pitch Perfect 3” will hit theaters in the United States on Dec. 22.
