hailee steinfeldAnother Oscar nominee has been added to "Pitch Perfect 2": Hailee Steinfeld is the newest Barden Bella.

Steinfeld, who was nominated for Best Supporting Actress for 2010's "True Grit," joins fellow Oscar nominee Anna Kendrick, who's reprising her role from the 2012 original. Rebel Wilson and Brittany Snow are also returning.

"Pitch Perfect" followed members of a female college a cappella group, and their struggle to be taken seriously after an embarrassing performance at a national a cappella competition. The storyline of the sequel is being kept under wraps for now, though it is expected to focus on Kendrick and Wilson's characters' senior year of college. Steinfeld's role is also unclear at this time.

Elizabeth Banks, who had a small role in the original, is making her feature directorial debut on the project. Original screenwriter Kay Cannon is back to pen the follow-up's screenplay.

"Pitch Perfect 2" hits theaters May 15, 2015.
