“Orange Is the New Black” star Ruby Rose has begun negotiations to join Universal and Gold Circle’s next installment in the “Pitch Perfect” franchise.
Trish Sie is taking over as director from Elizabeth Banks, who directed “Pitch Perfect 2.” Banks will reprise her role as Gail and remains on board as a producer along with Max Handelman of Brownstone Productions, and Paul Brooks of Gold Circle Entertainment.
Kay Cannon wrote the screenplay with additional drafts from Mike White and Dana Fox.
Plot details and a description of Rose’s character have yet to be unveiled.
The pic is set to bow on Dec. 22, 2017. Vice president of production Sara Scott will oversee the project for Universal.
