Pitch Perfect 3

Pitch Perfect: Trish Sie to direct third film in franchise

Sie, who previously directed 2014 dance film sequel Step Up All In, takes over from Elizabeth Banks, director of last year's Pitch Perfect 2.

Production on the third film about an all-girl a cappella group was halted after Banks announced in June she would not return to the director's chair.

Banks, who stays on board as producer, announced Sie's involvement on Twitter.
