Aca-scuse me? Elizabeth Banks trying her hand at directing?

You heard it right, "Pitch Perfect" cast member Elizabeth Banks is stepping out from the camera's eye and taking a seat in the director's chair for the film's sequel, "Pitch Perfect 2."

Banks's costar, Anna Camp, posted a congratulatory tweet minutes after the announcement was made by Variety.

The first installment of the a capella-themed films debuted in 2012 starring Anna Kendrick and Skylar Astin. Not only did it produce millions in the box office (just about $65 million to be exact), it also produced a Billboard No. 1 smash, "Cups (When I'm Gone)."

Think Banks has the directing chops to help No. 2 surpass the original?
