Elizabeth Banks rumored to direct RED QUEEN film


Victoria Aveyard’s popular new YA fantasy novel Red Queen may become a feature film.

Red Queen takes place in a world where those with red blood are commoners, and those with silver blood are gifted with god-like powers. When Mare Barrow discovers she has a power despite her red blood, she gets thrown into a fight for the throne.

Notable about this adaptation is the director rumoured to be attached to the project – Elizabeth Banks, the director of “Pitch Perfect 2” and the woman who plays Effie in the film adaptation of The Hunger Games series. Hollywood Reporter reported that she is currently in negotiations to direct the film.

Gennifer Hutchison penned the Red Queen film script. Jake Weiner, Chris Bender, and JC Spink of Benderspick are producing, along with Pouya Shahbazian and Christopher Cosmos.
