Elizabeth Banks has signed on as the lead in an untitled horror project produced by James Gunn and The H Collective, The Tracking Board has confirmed. The Hive helmer David Yarovesky will direct from a script by Brian and Mark Gunn. The H Collective will fully finance the feature and produce alongside Gunn and his company Troll Court Entertainment. The project is expected to start production this spring.
“Elizabeth and I have been on the same artistic page since we first met when she auditioned for Slither back in 2005,” Gunn said. “She’s since remained one of my best friends in the world, and I’ve been fighting tooth and nail to work with her again. She’s the perfect partner to Yarvo, the H Collective and myself in creating this very special project.”
Gunn’s best known for directing the Guardians of the Galaxy films, and is also credited with directing Slither and Super, both of which he wrote and directed. He is represented by UTA.
