Elizabeth Banks Goes Batty With Jay Leno, Does Cannes & Seems to Be the “It” Girl with THESE Upcoming Films
From newly announced films, to her appearances on “Scrubs” this past season, I’ve got the latest Liz Banks (C’96) updates below
- She appeared on Leno (see video above) recently and talked bats with Russell Brand
- A stunning Liz walks down the red carpet in Cannes last week (see pic on right)
- Liz will be starring with James McAvoy, and Laura Linney in “The Details”. Per Variety, the story is about “a couple (McAvoy and Banks) who discover an infestation of raccoons in their back yard. Disagreements over how to deal with the animals lead to an escalating series of events.” Shooting for the film began last week in Seattle.
- Liz will star in and produce the workplace comedy “Forever 21.” (source)
- The Uninvited came out on DVD. Liz basically plays a wicked stepmother in this film.
- She will star in What Was I Thinking?, with actresses Leslie Mann. Per Reuters the film will explore the comic side of bad relationships. The film is based on the nonfiction book What Was I Thinking?: 58 Bad Boyfriend Stories and centers “around a woman who gets dumped during her engagement party. Her friends spring into action and whisk her away on a ski trip for healing and hedonism. Threading through their adventures on the trip are four flashbacks dealing in “worst ex-boyfriend” tales. Mann (who happens to be married to Apatow) would play a woman who dates a lot but never seems to have serious relationships, while Banks is a woman on the rebound.”
