Looks like Brittany has landed a new movie role:
Pitch Perfect songbird Brittany Snow has lined up a potentially treacherous New York journey before the Barden Bellas reunite for a third outing.
The actress has boarded XYZ Films and Bullett Pictures’ Dave Bautista action vehicle Bushwick, replacing Suburgatory and Evil Dead reboot star Jane Levy, who was cast in March.
Snow will play a young woman who finds her neighborhood in Brooklyn under attack, with New York being used as a negotiation tool as Texas tries to secede from the U.S.
Bautista, fresh from the recent record-breaking bow of Spectre in the U.K., will star as a war vet who helps her cross the five blocks of Bushwick — littered with looters, local militias, invading forces and one crazy cousin — to get home and be reunited with her grandmother.
Cary Murnion and Jonathan Milott, who wrote the story for Bushwick, will direct from a screenplay by Nick Damici and Graham Reznik. XYZ’s co-founder Nate Bolotin will serve as producer alongside Bullett’s Adam Folk and Joseph Mensch of Mensch Productions. Bautista and Jonathan Meisner are exec producing with Todd Brown and Nick Spicer of XYZ.
XYZ is shopping the project to international buyers at the AFM and co-repping with WME Global for U.S. sales.
Bushwick is set to start shooting in New York next month.
Snow is managed by Gotham/Principal and represented by WME and attorney P.J. Shapiro. Bautista is represented by Gersh, manager Jonathan Meisner and attorney Jay Rosenthal. Murnion and Milott are represented by Verve and managed by PYE.
I’m the proudest fan girl ever right now! I hope everyone had a chance to watch “Pitch Perfect 2” this weekend! I watched it Saturday afternoon and theater was PACKED!! Brittany was fantastic (as per usual) and being a fan of hers for nearly 13 years I couldn’t help but feel so proud of our girl!! PP2 is breaking records!!:
The final tally is in, and Pitch Perfect 2 may end the weekend between $68.9M to $70.3M after a stunning Saturday night of $24.6M. Universal is going the high end on this, but everyone else in town (and we) are sticking to the lower estimate. We’ll see if the studio over-anticipated to get the $70M headline across the country (they’ve done so before). Still, the Universal film from first-time feature director Elizabeth Banks is the highest-opening musical ever (see chart below) and, as we previously reported, out-performed the $65M lifetime domestic gross of the first film.
Rentrak just noted the rarity of that, but said it’s a similar scenario to the performance of the second Austin Powers‘ film, The Spy Who Shagged Me which opened to $54.9M vs. the $53.8M that the original film earned in its domestic run. Universal is also boasting (as well it should) that PP2 is the second-highest PG-13 comedy opening ever (only behind Austin Powers Goldmember which opened to $73M in the summer of 2002). They also note that PP2 is the fifth-highest opening of the year to date and also marks the seventh time this year that a Universal film has held the No. 1 position (more than any other studio).

Hey guys looks like Brittany was cast in a new pilot! Let’s hope it gets picked up, you can read a bit about it below:
Pitch Perfect‘s Brittany Snow is set as the female lead opposite Jack Whitehall in ABC’s single-camera comedy pilot An American Education, based on the BBC Three series Bad Education. British actor-comedian Whitehall, who created and starred in the original series, is reprising his role as Alfie Wickers, now a British transplant and an unorthodox young teacher in the San Diego public school system. Alfie loves his students, but his youthful, often naive enthusiasm and unconventional methods put him at odds with the test-obsessed administrators. Snow, repped by ICM Partners, Magnolia Entertainment and Ziffren Brittenham, will play Sarah McIntyre, an earnest and book-smart chemistry teacher who is the object of Alfie’s eye as her current boyfriend is leaving the country. Rosie Perez co-stars the school’s hard-assed vice principal. Craig Zisk is directing from a script by Peter Huyck and Alex Gregory.
