The a cappella smash Pitch Perfect is getting a sequel, primarily as a result of the overwhelmingly positive response from fans.

Rehearsals have been underway for Pitch Perfect 2 for a while now, with creator and first-time-director Elizabeth Banks posting photos on the set via her website. She’s shown cast members in matching jackets and the girl all laughing as they stand gathered together outside. There have even been a few dance rehersal photos floating around, though nothing that gives away too much of the upcoming film’s narrative.

Recently, however, the actress turned director announced a slightly more interactive experience for fans wishing to go the extra mile and take part in the film itself.
“Are you in the New Orleans area? Do you want to be in Pitch Perfect 2?” write Banks. “Did you answer yes to both of these questions? Join us this Friday and you could also win some awesome prizes.”

Banks then provided a link leading to more details. The film is looking for extras to participate on an unpaid basis today, June 20, for some larger scenes in the film. Apparently filmmakers have decided to make it into something of an event, with electronics and gift card giveaways going on throughout the day.

Filming takes place in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Fans who would like to get involved must register and be over the age of sixteen in order to participate.

Pitch Perfect 2 hits theatres in May 2015.

Welcome to Elizabeth Banks Network, your online resource for actress Elizabeth Banks.
I have been a fan of Elizabeth since quite long time and when I saw her on Modern Family for the first time, I knew this site was going to happen. So far I’ve been updating the site with few news and added most of it but parts of the events are still missing and will be added in the following days. The site is comprehensive of a news section, a photo gallery and a video archive. Themes have been coded by me and the headers are all thanks to the wonderful Kimberly. You can follow our updates also from twitter. Enjoy your stay!

The Obama administration is expanding its Turnaround Arts program, an initiative designed to bring arts programs to failing schools in an effort to boost student achievement.

The program is a public-private partnership funded in part with $5 million from the Department of Education, the National Endowment for the Arts and the Ford Foundation, among others. The program has been in pilot mode for the past two years in eight schools around the country, where the coin supports the hiring of arts instructors and the integration of arts into core subjects such as reading, math and science.

The expanded program will extend Turnaround Arts funding to 35 schools in California, Colorado, Connecticut, Illinois, Iowa, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Montana, Oregon and Washington D.C. To promote awareness of the effort, the President’s Committee on the Arts and the Humanities has enlisted a number of showbiz notables to serve as “Turnaround Artist” reps, including Kerry Washington.

Washington put Turnaround Arts in the spotlight last year when she was feted by Variety with its Power of Women award. 

New recruits for the promotional effort including Elizabeth Banks, Elton John, Frank Gehry, Jason Mraz, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Josh Groban, Marc Anthony, Rashida Jones, Russell Simmons, the Silk Road Ensemble, Tim Robbins and Troy Andrews (aka Trombone Shorty).

“The Turnaround Arts program has exceeded not just our expectations, but our wildest hopes and dreams,” said first lady Michelle Obama, honorary chair of the committee. “With the help of this program and some School Improvement Grants, math and reading scores have gone up in these schools… attendance is up, enrollment is up…parent engagement is up… suspensions have plummeted…and two of the schools in our pilot improved so dramatically that they are no longer in turnaround status. And today, the students in these schools are engaged in their education like never before.”

“Everybody is dying for something,” Elizabeth Banks laughs when our conversation moves to Pitch Perfect 2. The actress may be promoting her upcoming comedy, Walk of Shame, co-starring James Marsden but we couldn’t help but to ask about the upcoming sequel to the sleeper hit, which she’s currently shooting in Louisiana.

“They’re all graduating seniors,” Banks says of the film’s stars, Anna Kendrick and Rebel Wilson. Both played freshmen who join the Barden Bellas and eventually take the all-female a cappella group to national championship.

Banks also confirms that John Michael Higgins will be returning. Higgins hilariously played one of the ICCAs commentators alongside Banks’ Gail Abernathy-McKadden. “We will see a little more of Gail and John and delve into their dynamic,” Banks says before teasing the potential for more of Gail’s back-story. “You’re going to learn more about why she has three last names.”

Even though Gail was in the a cappella collegiate group, Menstrual Cycles, Banks says she will not be singing in the sequel. It’s a shame because that truly would have been aca-awesome.

Walk of Shame debuts in theaters nationwide on May 2.
