While Rose has not yet officially joined the project, it could be her latest attempt to add some level of diversity to her resume. Outside of the Netflix hit series, she has four action films on her upcoming slate already – Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, xXx: Return of Xander Cage, John Wick: Chapter 2, and Meg. Joining this franchise at this point in her career should allow her the opportunity to show some of her comedic timing and her vocal range if necessary.
At this time there have been no plot details released for the third installment, but since Pitch Perfect 2 ended with Beca (Kendrick), Fat Amy (Wilson), Aubrey (Anna Camp), and the majority of the Bellas graduating, it will be interesting to see where Rose will fit in. It appears as though Hailee Steinfeld’s Emily has been put in charge of the club, and brining in someone like Rose would certainly continue to break the traditional Bella mold that had been in place.
However, she may be better fit to be the leader of an opposing all-female a cappella group that are the complete opposites of the champion Bellas. This direction would be one that keeps the films cast and story female driven, but also offers up an element that has not yet been explored in these movies. The Bellas have proved over the last few years that all-female groups can be nationally and globally recognized, so to have other groups try and emulate their success seems like a natural progression. None of this is likely to be revealed for some time as the movie has yet to begin filming, but the possibility of Rose joining could open the door for quite a few possibilities.
Pitch Perfect 3 will open in US theaters on December 22, 2017.
