Other things, though, had to be bigger and better. The Bellas couldn't just compete for a national title — they had to head for the world's, which would also give the film an international tie-in. New girls were added to the group, including "True Grit" Oscar nominee Hailee Steinfeld. Pop star Jessie J was drafted to write the sequel's new original song, "Flashlight," which Universal is hoping will become the next "Cups." And the film's budget was upped to $29 million.
