Hailee Steinfeld in Negotiations to Join PITCH PERFECT 2

The stars of Pitch Perfect may welcome a new girl into the fold for the hit film's sequel.

According to Variety, Hailee Steinfeld is in talks to join the cast of PITCH PERFECT 2, joining Anna Kendrick, Rebel Wilson and Brittany Snow. Elizabeth Banks will direct, with Kay Cannon also returning to pen the script. No details on who she might play were revealed.

Pitch Perfect 2 hits theaters on May 15, 2015.

In PITCH PERFECT, when Beca leads this acoustic singing group out of their traditional arrangements and perfect harmonies into all-new mashups, they fight to climb their way to the top of college music competitions. This could wind up either the coolest thing they'll ever do or the most insane, and it will probably be a little of both. The Pitch Perfect ensemble includes Kendrick (Twilight, Up in the Air), Anna Camp (The Help), Brittany Snow (Hairspray) and Wilson (Bridesmaids, Bachelorette).

Kendrick is known for her roles in such films as The Company You Keep, End of Watch, The Twilight Saga, Scott Pilgrim Saves the World, ParaNorman and 50/50. In 2010, Kendrick starred opposite George Clooney and Jason Bateman in the film Up in the Air, which earned her a Best Supporting Actress Oscar nomination.

Kendrick will soon be seen as Cinderella in the big-screen adaptation of Stephen Sondheim's Into the Woods. An accomplished theater veteran, Kendrick made her Broadway debut in the 1997 production of High Society, for which she received a Tony Award nomination. Kendrick's additional theater work includes A Little Night Music, My Favorite Broadway/The Leading Ladies: Live at Carnegie Hall and Broadway workshops of Jane Eyre and The Little Princess. Earlier this year, Kendrick's hit song "Cups (When I'm Gone)," from The Pitch Perfect soundtrack, climbed into to the Top 10 on Billboard's Adult Pop Song chart.
