Pittsfield-bred Elizabeth Banks, who proved her producing prowess with the 2012 hit “Pitch Perfect,” is getting a sequel — and this time she’ll direct. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Banks, who produced and acted in “Pitch Perfect,” which is about a college a cappella group, has signed on to helm “Pitch Perfect 2.” We assume that the original film’s star, Mainer Anna Kendrick, will return for the second installment. Kendrick (right) was spotted taking cellphone pictures during the Macklemore performance/group wedding at the Grammys.
