In a recent interview with Philly.com, Elizabeth Banks talked about her movies People Like Us, the Hunger Games and Pitch Perfect!
Here’s an excerpt from Philly.com :
Banks says she had read the Suzanne Collins books before being cast in the film, and had a sense that the movie was going places.
“I wouldn’t say its success came as a total surprise. I was a huge fan of the books and of the characters and of that world, and then I’m a huge Gary Ross fan” — The Hunger Games’ director.
“That said, I don’t think we knew how rabid the young people were going to be about it. It’s always tricky, especially because of the subject matter. But I did know that we all loved it, and if there were enough of us out there and they bought tickets that it would translate. And the way that the film has been embraced is incredible.”
