BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
Elizabeth Banks and the producers of Walk Of Shame are being sued by Dan Rosen, a screenwriter who claims the concept for the film was stolen from a script he gave Banks back in 2007. He's filed the case through his production company, ironically called Shame on You Productions.
Did you ever have one of “those” days, where every step seemed to be in the wrong direction? Elizabeth Banks is having 12 of those at once in Walk of Shame, director Steven Brill’s disaster-filled follow-up to 2008’s Drillbit Taylor.
Written and directed by Steven Brill, a TV reporter who dreams of one day getting to sit in the anchor's chair. Alone and miserable one night, she lets her friends talk her into going out partying, which results in plenty of drunkenness, meeting a cute boy (James Marsden) and going home with him.
I know the phrase "epic fail" is totally dated, but we need to revive it to properly describe this truly awful poster for the Elizabeth Banks vehicle Walk of Shame. Seriously, this poster just fails on every level.
This is set to be a big year for director James Wan. Not only does the filmmaker have The Conjuring due out this summer, set to debut in theaters on July 19th, he also has the anticipated sequel Insidious Chapter 2 due out in the fall.
Lakeshore Entertainment and Sidney Kimmel Entertainment are proud to announce the cast has expanded to include Bill Burr, Liz Carey, Ken Davitian, Willie Garson, Lawrence Gilliard Jr., Oliver Hudson, Alphonso McAuley, Kevin Nealon, Tig Notaro, Ethan Suplee and Sarah Wright.
Elizabeth Banks may soon be doing the Walk of Shame on the big screen, but at least she will have a best friend to help her through the experience. Gillian Jacobs, best known for playing Britta "The Worst" Perry on the critically acclaimed NBC series Community has signed on to join Banks in the upcoming Steve Brill comedy and will be playing the main character's close bud.
Marsden is no stranger to this genre, having romanced everyone from Tina Fey (on 30 Rock) and Amy Adams (in Enchanted) to Katherine Heigl in the putrid 27 Dresses. Before he was typecast as the empty suit standing next to pretty girls, though, Marsden started challenging himself in better movies. He’ll next be seen in 2 Guns with Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg and he'll be seen next year playing John F. Kennedy in Lee Daniels’ The Butler.
There are some women among today's crop of talented female actors that seem fearless when it comes to comedy. Elizabeth Banks is one of them. Though she has tackled dramatic performances in the past, she shines when there's humor involved in the role. So It's always good news to hear she's starring in a comedy, particularly after her brief but memorable appearance in the recently released Pitch Perfect.
