Penntertainment

Will Liz Banks Bring Robert De Niro and Bradley Cooper to Pats for a Cheesesteak?

Elizabeth Banks
Nothing seems to be slowing down Elizabeth Banks’ career!

After the jump, more about Liz shooting a film in Philly, her appearance on last night’s “30 Rock” and her upcoming directing gig!

In the coming month, Liz will be shooting Dark Fields, a new thriller set in Philadelphia with co-stars Robert De Niro and Bradley Cooper.

Per comingsoon.net and NBCPhiladelphia.com,

“The film, based on the book by Alan Glynn, follows a down-and-out writer (Cooper) who gets his hands on a top-secret pharmaceutical drug that makes one smarter. He experiences sudden financial and social success but soon discovers that the drug has lethal and lasting side effects. Before long, mysterious antagonists are pursuing him.”

De Niro will play a brilliant financial whiz and Liz plays the female lead opposite Bradley Cooper.

…I believe the last time Liz filmed in Philadelphia was in the stands of Franklin Field for the film Invincible.

3/19/10 Update:
Looks like Liz will now NOT be starring in this film and is being replaced by Abbie Cornish.

In other Liz news:

  • Did you catch her on “30 Rock” last night? In the episode, “Jack (Alec Baldwin) frets that his dreams will be dashed after Avery (Liz) tells him of a rumor that a cable company wants to buy out NBC.” (fyi, Liz is wearing in a wig as she was in the middle of filming a movie as a brunette with Russell Crowe)

"Because of Penntertainment, I got scouted for Nickelodeon. I had such a great time talking with them. I may be a resource for a show on science, travel, geography, gender etc. Thanks for all you do. It really makes a difference."
