"365 days until Pitch Perfect 2 is released," the 40-year-old wrote. In the snapshot, Banks, Anna Kendrick, Brittany Snow, Rebel Wilson, newbie Hailee Steinfeld, and others wear matching "Bellas" jackets. (The "Bellas" is in reference to their school's Barden Bellas singing team.) The ladies are grouped together (and giving some attitude!) in what appears to be a dance studio.

"I'm really excited to direct the girls," she added of her new role. "The whole project speaks so much to me and to women and to making women funny in really fun and interesting ways, and that's what I'm most looking forward to. I'm looking forward to letting the girls let loose."
