The cast of Universal’s Pitch Perfect are set to reunite for the first time live on-stage at the MTV Movie Awards, where one of their own – Rebel Wilson – will serve as host.
The Barden Bellas and Treblemakers, played by Wilson, Skylar Astin, Anna Camp, Esther Dean, Adam Devine, Alexis Knapp, Hana Mae Lee, Ben Platt and Brittany Snow, will perform a new musical mash-up performance conceived and executed by the film’s director, Jason Moore. The set will serve as the show’s opening number.
“I could not be more thrilled for the MTV Movie Awards to be the setting for the Pitch Perfect Bella and Treblemaker reunion,” said Moore. “We have something exciting in store for the MTV audience, and I know the cast and fans are going to really enjoy our first-ever live performance!”
The film itself is up for four awards at the April 14 ceremony, including best female and best breakthrough performances for Wilson, best musical moment for the Bellas as a whole and best WTF moment for Camp.
Missing from the reunion is the film's star, Anna Kendrick. Sources indicate that the actress is unable to commit due to scheduling conflicts, which could potentially be resolved in time for the show.
MTV also announced on Thursday that Macklemore and Ryan Lewis will be on hand to perform their “Thrift Shop” follow-up single, “Can’t Hold Us.”
