Actress-filmmaker Elizabeth Banks says the reason for her exiting “Pitch Perfect 3” as director is the responsibility she has towards her kids.

The 42-year-old mother of two announced this week that she will no longer serve as director of the upcoming “Pitch Perfect 3,” though she will stay on as a producer, said The Hollywood Reporter.

“It was all timing. We feel obligated to put out the best movie, and anyone who has done sequels, this third one is hard to figure out what the story is. We want to give the audience what it wants but not making it repetitive.

“We have been in development and it took longer than we thought, and I needed to shoot another movie in the summer. If we pushed into fall it bumped up against my parental responsibilities, which made me feel uncomfortable,” she said.
