Elizabeth Banks Reunites With GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY Director James Gunn For New Horror Film

Hunger Games actress Elizabeth Banks is set to star in an untitled horror movie produced by Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn. It will be the duo's first time back together since 2006's Slither.

In 2006, James Gunn made his directorial debut with the sci-fi black comedy film Slither, starring Elizabeth Banks. Now the two are reuniting for a currently untitled horror film.

Gunn, who has since gone on to the Marvel Cinematic Universe where he directed the Guardians of the Galaxy movies, is producing the movie alongside The H Collective, which is fully financing and producing it. Banks, meanwhile, is coming off Pitch Perfect 3, which she produced and acted in, and recently wrapped The Happytime Murders with Melissa McCarthy.

“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.”

The script was written by Brian and Mark Gunn, with the logline being kept a secret for now. Production is expected to start in the spring with David Yarovesky at the helm.
