Universal Pictures is in need of a new Pitch Perfect 3 director today as Variety reports that Elizabeth Banks has exited as the helmer of the comedy sequel. According to the trade rag, Banks’ departure was on good terms and was due to her busy dance card. Banks is also attached to direct a new big screen Charlie’s Angels movie at Sony Pictures and, back at Universal, a feature film adaptation of Victoria Aveyard’s young adult novel Red Queen.

Earlier this week, Universal shifted the release date of Pitch Perfect 3. Originally scheduled for July 21, 2017, the film will now hit the big screen five months later on December 22. Taking its place will be director Malcolm Lee’s ensemble comedy Girl Trip.

Anna Kendrick, Britanny Snow and Rebel Wilson have already been confirmed to headline the returning cast of Pitch Perfect 3. Kay Cannon, who scripted the first two franchise entries, is working on the script for the third film.

Although Banks will not serve as the Pitch Perfect 3 director, she’ll remain aboard the project as producer and ,hopeful a, star.
