Elizabeth Banks eyes ‘Next’ project

Actress in talks to costar with Russell Crowe in film

Elizabeth Banks is in final negotiations to star opposite Russell Crowe in Lionsgate’s “The Next Three Days,” Paul Haggis’ adaptation of the French thriller “Pour elle.”

Haggis is directing, writing and producing “Next Three Days,” which centers on an ordinary couple who find themselves in an unthinkable situation and have to make desperate choices that will test the limits of love. Haggis and Michael Nozik will produce “The Next Three Days” through their production entity Highway 61 Films, along with Marc Missonnier and Olivier Delbosc of Fidelite Films.

Banks is attached with Leslie Mann to New Line’s comedy “What Was I Thinking?” and to DreamWorks’ workplace comedy “Forever 21,” which she’s also producing through her shingle, Brownstone Prods.

Banks’ recent credits include horror film “The Uninvited” and Oliver Stone’s “W.”

She is repped by UTA and Untitled Entertainment.
