Following the surprise success of Universal’s Pitch Perfect last year, DreamWorks is getting in on the a capella craze.  The studio has picked up a pitch about the story behind the a capella group Straight No Chaser, which was formed by ten Indiana University students in 1996.  The group was fairly successful in the late 1990s but disbanded three years after forming, only to see a video of their 1998 performance of “12 Days of Christmas” go viral in 2006 when it was uploaded to YouTube.  Atlantic Records CEO Craig Kallman saw the video and quickly got the group back together, signing a five-record deal and bringing Straight No Chaser widespread mainstream success.  Hit the jump for more.
