Elizabeth Banks Set for Alan Ball’s New Movie

Elizabeth Banks will star in What's the Matter With Margie?, a dark comedy written by Alan Ball and Series 7: The Contenders writer and director Danial Minahan. The movie is about a bummed-out corporate drone (Banks), who after years of distress snaps and starts murdering her tormentors — so more like American Beauty or Six Feet Under than True Blood.
