An upcoming comedy musical film directed by Jason Moore, a TV director of “Dawson’s Creek” and “Everwood” who makes his feature directorial debut. The screenplay by Kay Cannon is based on Mickey Rapkin’s non-fiction novel. Set in the world of college a cappella singing competitions, the film starring Anna Kendrick (Up in the Air, 50/50), Alexis Knapp, Rebel Wilson (Bridesmaids) and Brittany Snow. Elizabeth Banks (The Hunger Games, What to Expect When You’re Expecting) was a co-producer and a co-star in the film.
Beca (Kendrick) is that girl who’d rather listen to what’s coming out of her headphones than what’s coming out of you. Arriving at her new college, she finds herself not right for any clique but somehow is muscled into one that she never would have picked on her own: alongside mean girls, sweet girls and weird girls whose only thing in common is how good they sound when they sing together, in the new out-loud comedy Pitch Perfect.
When Beca takes this acoustic singing group out of their world of traditional arrangements and perfect harmonies into all-new mash-ups, they fight to climb their way to the top of the cutthroat world of college a cappella. This could wind up either the coolest thing they’ll ever do or the most insane, and it will probably be a little of both.
