Elizabeth Banks Producing ‘Perfect Pitch’ Without Musical Instrumentation

Saturday, July 2 by
 

The world of college a cappella groups has never been hotter. So leave it to tastemaker Elizabeth Banks to produce a comedy about that world, entitled Perfect Pitch. I bet that’s what the studio executives at Universal were saying about this project after it was presented to them, ha ha!

Uh, anyway, the movie will be based on a nonfiction book about college a cappella by Mickey Rapkin, written by Kay Cannon and directed by Jason Moore. And I’m hoping there will  be plenty of punny a cappella group names, like “The Harvard Law Scales of Justice” (I tried to come up with some puns myself, but it turns out that all of them are alread taken. A cappella groups are truly the most shameless people in the world). Now all that remains to be seen is if the white-hot popularity of college a cappella will suffer a backlash now that it’s “gone mainstream.” (Variety)

    @I paid $32.67 for a XBOX 360 and my mom got a 17 inch Toshiba laptop for $94.83 being delivered to our house tomorrow by FedEX. I will never again pay expensive retail prices at stores. I even sold a 46 inch HDTV to my boss for $650 and it only cost me $52.78 to get. Here is the website we using to get all this stuff, BidsNew.com
