Two weeks ago, we applauded Elizabeth Banks, Lead Comedic Actress.

Now we celebrate Elizabeth Banks, Feature Filmmaker. 

The Hollywood Reporter revealed yesterday that Banks will make her directorial debut with Pitch Perfect 2. The Hunger Games co-star produced the college a capella comedy, which made, um, bank by grossing $115 million worldwide on a $17 million budget (and another $135 in ancillary markets like DVD and VOD sales). Banks also had a minor role in Pitch Perfect.

Pitch Perfect's two aca-buddies, Anna Kendrick and Rebel Wilson, are likely to return for the sequel, as is screenwriter Kay Cannon, who penned the first film's script.
