LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Elizabeth Banks has lined up a new gig.
The “Man on a Ledge” star has been cast in Charlie Kaufman’s (“Being John Malkovich,” “Adaptation”) star-studded musical, “Frank or Francis,” according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The blond beauty will play “a highly-regarded actress making formulaic comedy bombs,” who is having an affair with film director Frank (played by Steve Carell) in the upcoming movie, THR reports.
In addition to Carell, Banks joins an impressive cast that includes Jack Black (set to play Francis, a snarky online blogger), Kevin Kline, Catherine Keener and Nicolas Cage in the satirical comedy.
The film is slated for release in 2013.
