Elizabeth Banks has a new interview with Collider promoting her new movie ‘Pitch Perfect’, which she actually produced. She talks about the difficulty finding good work in Hollywood, and how excited she is for her potential next project, which could be playing Tinkerbell.
When asked about whether it’s hard finding interesting work, she says, “It’s really hard! It’s really hard to find things that are challenging. That’s why this producing opportunity was so meaningful to me and why I worked so hard at it. It was a true challenge. Effie was really great and challenging. I made People Like Us last year. But, I look at the landscape and I’ve been doing this a long time, so I’ve played a lot of girlfriends and wives. I’m a fully developed, three-dimensional mother, wife and working woman. I would like to play that. I would like to live that, in my work. I know what level I can be working at, and I feel like the industry, most of the time, is offering me stuff down here. So, I’m always reaching to find something that will challenge me and make me do my best.”
When asked about Tink, she says, “I hope I get to take on that role! I hope we get to make that movie. It’s something that we’re really focused on, right now. We think we have a really fun script. She’s an amazing character. We’re going full steam ahead, but it’s a miracle whenever a movie gets made. Are we going to find the right collaborators who see the movie that we see? We hope so.”
Elizabeth Banks recently spoke up about her Catching Fire director, Francis Lawrence, and said he is 'amazing'.
