Hailee Steinfeld has joined the cast of 'Pitch Perfect 2'.

The 'True Grit' actress will team up with returning cast members Anna Kendrick, Rebel Wilson and Brittany Snow for the forthcoming sequel, which will mark co-star Elizabeth Banks' directorial debut.

According to Empire, although specific details are being kept under wraps, Steinfeld is reportedly set to take on a role that would allow her to continue the franchise in future should Kendrick decide to move on.

The original film, which was released in 2012, focused on a college freshman (Kendrick) who reluctantly leads an a cappella group called the Bellas to the finals.

It was a surprise hit and over-performed in the box office, grossing over $115 million worldwide.

The soundtrack also proved popular, going platinum with over 1 million copies sold and single 'Cups' selling almost 3 million units.

Kay Cannon, who adapted the first film from Mickey Rapkin's original book, is scripting the sequel.

Steinfeld can next be seen in '3 Days to Kill' with Kevin Costner, and also has 'The Homesman', 'Term Life' and 'Barely Lethal' awaiting release.
