‘Pitch Perfect 3’ Moves to December 2017

While the film is still in pre-production, Universal Pictures has decided to push back the release of “Pitch Perfect 3” from July 21, 2017 to Dec. 22, 2017.

In its place Universal has put its other female-centric comedy “Girl Trip” starring Regina Hall, bowing on July 21. The pic was originally set to open Aug. 11, 2017.

Anna Kendrick, Brittany Snow and Rebel Wilson have already closed deals to return, with Kay Cannon on board to pen the script and Elizabeth Banks set to direct.

The 2012 original grossed $113 million worldwide, while “Pitch Perfect 2” has more than doubled that, grossing $286 million worldwide to date on a $29 million budget.

No plot details have been released.

The original film was adapted from Mickey Rapkin’s book “Pitch Perfect: The Quest for Collegiate A Cappella Glory.”

Paul Brooks of Gold Circle Entertainment and Banks and Max Handelman of Brownstone Productions are returning to produce.

“Girl Trip” will be directed by Malcolm Lee and follows four lifelong friends who travel to New Orleans for the annual Essence Festival, where sisterhoods are rekindled, wild sides are rediscovered, and there’s enough dancing, drinking, brawling and romancing to make the Big Easy blush. Will Packer will produce.
