The 41-year old Elizabeth Banks, who has been quite active in front of the camera over the years, is now taking a lot more interest in behind the camera jobs. She produced a Disney sci-fi thriller “The Surrogates” in 2009. The film, starring Bruce Willis and Radha Mitchell, turned out to be a modest success at the box office.

The film was unexpected hit which received both critical acclaim and commercial success and grossed more than $250 million worldwide. The success of Pitch Perfect 2 led to the announcement of another sequel. But it is remains a mystery whether she is returning for the third installment of the series.
Rumors are circulating that Banks is apparently interested in directing “Red Queen, which is a film adaptation of the novel of the same name written by Victoria Aveyard.
On TV, Brownstone Productions is currently developing an HBO series which revolves around tennis legends Billie Jean King and Bobby Riggs’s and their famous tennis battle. Banks is reportedly tapped for the role of Billie Jean King in the series. The recent deal means that Banks is going to produce a lot more material for the television in future. But it does not mean that she is quitting acting at all.
