The actress joins Jack Black, Nicolas Cage and Kate Winslet in the musical satire about Hollywood.
Elizabeth Banks, who stars in this weekend’s Man On A Ledge with Sam Worthington, has joined the star-studded cast of Frank Or Francis, Charlie Kaufman’s musical satire about Hollywood.
Banks joins a roll call that includes Jack Black, Nicolas Cage, Steve Carell, Catherine Keener and Kevin Kline in a story that follows a battle of wills between Frank, an intellectual film director (Carell) and Francis, an online blogger (Black) who still lives at home and who delights in attacking the other man’s films.
Cage plays an actor who is famous for his high-concept films while Kline will play the director of the world’s top-grossing movie as well as that character’s brother who turns into an animatronic head.
Banks will play a highly-regarded actress making formulaic comedy bombs who is having an affair with Carell’s Frank.
Anthony Bregman of A Likely Story is producing.
