‘Pitch Perfect 3′ Has Found Its Director in Trish Sie
Pitch Perfect 3 has finally found its director, and she seems like a perfect fit.
The third film about the all-female singing group will be helmed by Step Up: All In director Trish Sie, according to The Hollywood Reporter. But you don’t have to remember that Step Up film to know the filmmaker’s work. Sie is a Grammy winning music video director and choreographer best known for her collaborations with OK Go, including the band’s famous treadmill video for “Here It Goes Again,” which won her a Grammy, and their zero-gravity video for “Upside Down and Inside Out.” Based on those alone you know Sie will bring some visual panache to the third movie.
The search for a Pitch Perfect 3 director has been ongoing since June when Elizabeth Banks, exited as director. Banks produced and directed Pitch Perfect 2, but is expected to return in her role as Gail alongside Anna Kendrick, Rebel Wilson, Brittany Snow, Hailee Steinfeld, and Banks. The film’s release date was recently pushed back from June, 2017 and will now hit theaters December 22, 2017.
