Elizabeth Banks has finally met with Catching Fire director Francis Lawrence, she revealed to E! Online at the Maui Film Festival. What did they discuss? Well, Elizabeth isn’t spilling much, but here’s what she did say.
“Let me tell you what’s fun—to have the job before the director!” Banks told me at the Maui Film Festival, where she was honored with this year’s Navigator Award.
“That has never happened ever in my life,” she said.
She added with a big laugh, “Going into that meeting, I was like, ‘I have the job. You tell me what you’re going to do, buddy—cause I’m already in this hit movie.’”
Banks and Lawrence met for coffee. “We talked about where the movie is going,” she said. “It was great.” No, she’s not spilling on any specifics.
Banks is, no surprise, looking forward to playing Effie again. “I love being with Woody [Harrelson] and Lenny [Kravitz],” she said. “That’s who I get to pal around with.”
