Hailee Steinfeld, who Kendrick and Wilson’s characters Beca and Amy left in charge of the Barden Bellas at the end of Pitch Perfect 2, has been less forthcoming with confirmation that she’ll star. So far, at least.

Elizabeth Banks, who produced both films and directed Pitch Perfect 2, also took to Twitter to confirm the news. Banks is reportedly back in the producer’s chair for the upcoming feature, but it remains to be seen whether she’ll be returning to direct, too.

Kay Cannon, who wrote the first two films, is reportedly in talks about returning for Pitch Perfect 3. It remains to be seen what direction the storyline will take after most of the Bellas – including Beca and Fat Amy – graduated from Barden University at the end of the sequel.
