Elizabeth Banks To Produce Holiday Film About Mrs. Claus



Elizabeth Banks has won over the hearts of movie lovers again and again. She was perfect as Effie Trinket in The Hunger Games, she was hilarious in Wet Hot American Summer, and, best of all, she directed Pitch Perfect 2 — making her one of the only women to direct a major studio film in 2015. And now, it looks like Banks might play Mrs. Claus. According to Deadline, in a new deal with Universal, Banks and her hubby/producing partner Max Handelman are producing a film about Mrs. Claus and the stress that the holiday season puts on her and her marriage to Santa Claus. The film is written by Emmy Award-winner John Riggi, who has worked on 30 Rock, The Comeback and Will & Grace. Right now, it’s not confirmed whether or not Banks will play Mrs. Claus in the film, or if she’ll be content to stay on the production side of things — but, seriously, she’d be totally perfect for the role.
