Sie directed "Step Up All In" and did the choreography for Ok Go's "Upside Down & Inside Out" and "Here it Goes Again." The script is written by Kay Cannon.

Adam Devine, on the other hand, may or may not take part in the movie. "I don't even know if I'm going to be in it. They didn't have me sign on," the 32-year-old actor told LA Times. "I love doing those movies. It's so much fun. Schedule permitting, I would love to do it."

The three-year gap between the first two films puts Beca, Fat Amy and super senior Chloe in their last year in college. Steinfeld's character, Emily, was the lone freshman Bella and is expected to carry on the name of the group. For the third movie, there's still a lot that's left to be said about what the seniors are planning for their last year in college, and whether Emily is being groomed to lead the new generation of Bellas.

"Pitch Perfect 2" scored 287.5 million worldwide, becoming the highest-grossing movie-musical opening of all time when it came out in May 2015. "Pitch Perfect 3" is being scheduled for a Dec. 22, 2017 release date.
