"There's been talks of a sequel. I have read them just like everyone else has read them," actor Skylar Astin said. "All I know is that it's supposed to come out in, like, two years, so I better hear something else soon. I don't know. I think they're writing the script now, so they don't want to tell us. Hopefully, I made the cut."
He added that he wants to see the story take an international twist.
"I want everyone to go abroad. I want the whole thing to be international just so we can film in a really cool location, but also, I think it would be really cool to see different countries' perspective on a cappella," Astin said. "I think that would be really awesome. Because what do you do after you win nationals? You go international. That's my pitch."
Co-Star Adam Devine also noted that he would like to return to the franchise despite disappearing at the end of the first movie.
"I pitched to Kay Cannon, who wrote the movie and is writing the second one as well, that I want to come back as a K-pop star," DeVine said. "Like, maybe it didn't work in America, so I went over to Korea and just blew up. So we'll see if she took that to heart and wrote it in the next script."
Actress Hana Mae Lee was also interviewed and gave similar pitches for the sequel to that of her co-stars.
"You can go so many places," she said. "I can go over to K-pop or J-Pop, and Rebel can go to Australia, and all just battle each other worldwide. But we'll see what happens. They're working on it."
The original "Pitch Perfect" grossed $65 million at the domestic box office and over $100 million worldwide; the film only cost an estimated $17 million. The film was well-received by critics and holds an 81 percent approval score on aggregate site Rotten Tomatoes. The site's critical consensus for the movie says, "Pitch Perfect's plot is formulaic, but the performances are excellent and the musical numbers are toe-tapping as well."
