Elizabeth Banks has met Catching Fire director Francis Lawrence, talks about the meeting

Posted on by

Elizabeth Banks talked to E! Online about director Francis Lawrence; she admitted she’s met him and discussed how was it like arriving to the meeting knowing she had the role long before having a director.

“Let me tell you what’s fun — to have the job before the director!” Banks told me at the Maui Film Festival, where she was honored with this year’s Navigator Award. “That has never happened ever in my life,” she said.

She added with a big laugh, “Going into that meeting, I was like, ‘I have the job. You tell me what you’re going to do, buddy—cause I’m already in this hit movie.'” Banks and Lawrence met for coffee. “We talked about where the movie is going,” she said. “It was great.”

Talking about Catching Fire Banks said she can’t really wait to work one more time with Woody Harrelson and Lenny Kravitz. “That’s who I get to pal around with,” said.

Both Josh Hutcherson and Jennfier Lawrence have already met the new director but we’re still waiting to hear from Liam!
