Elizabeth Banks is a member of a small Hollywood club: women who make big studio movies. After directing ‘Pitch Perfect 2’ and a ‘Charlie’s Angels’ reboot set for release this fall, Banks has even bigger ambitions. Fresh off producing the heartful Hulu comedy ‘shrill,’ Banks tells us about getting bored with acting and moving into producing and directing. Despite the industry-wide talk of opening opportunities to women, she says she’s still run up against some very closed minds.
