Elizabeth Banks On Barb Comedy

Elizabeth Banks (“Seabiscuit,” “Spider-Man 3”) will star in and produce the Universal romantic comedy “What About Barb” reports Variety.

The story follows a socialite who must allow her uncouth cousin to be maid of honor so her nouveau riche uncle will pay for the wedding.

“Accepted” scribe Mark Perez (“Cellmates,” “The Hardy Boys”) is writing the pic, based on the story of the same name by Jill Bernheimer and Keetgi Kogan.
