Who else from the first movie will be featured in “Pitch Perfect 2”? Well, Kay Cannon who is responsible for the hysterical script of the original flick will be returning to the writer’s room to create witty lines for the cast. And Wilson has revealed she couldn’t be more excited for the talented screenwriter to bring "Fat Amy" back to life. “Our writer Kay Cannon is writing the second script. So, yeah, it's gonna be pretty awesome,” the Australian actress said, adding her enthusiasm that Jason Moore would also be joining the crew. "I'm excited about it. I loved doing the first one. Our director Jason Moore is back.”
The first installation, which was based around a women’s college group called The Barden Bella’s and their struggle for success, brought in more than $112 million at the worldwide box office. Not to mention, received raving reviews from critics and fans alike.
