James McAvoy, Elizabeth Banks Team Up For Dark Comedy

Aww, this cast is so adorable: James McAvoy, Elizabeth Banks, Anna Friel and Laura Linney have all signed on for the dark comedy The Details. No real details yet on Friel or Linney's roles, but apparently the story centers on a couple, to be played by McAvoy and Banks, "who discover an infestation of raccoons in their back yard. Disagreements over how to deal with the animals lead to an escalating series of events."

There's not too much to say about this project yet besides the fact that I'm so intrigued to see Banks and McAvoy together onscreen. I never would have thought of pairing up these two, but now that I think about it, this seems like it could be really funny (and McAvoy is always very easy to watch, of course). Who else would you want to see teamed up with James McAvoy? Do you think he and Banks will do well together?

okay, these are two of my favorite actors! together?! could it be true?! I am so excited for this, especially because I think James McAvoy is one of those hidden comedic talents (does anyone remember him in Wimbeldon?) well, I love both of them no matter what they do, and I love Laura Linney too! this is going to be such a good movie...

Love James McAvoy so I'll definitely be seeing this. Can't wait. There's not nearly enough McAvoy on the big screen.

This is going to be a hit, Elizabeth is just stunning and James is well...he makes it easy to love him. Cant wait til the movie comes out considering the main leads are histerical.

I loved Elizabeth Banks in Seabiscuit. It was a nice role for her and she looked gorgeous with dark hair. I really loved James in Becoming Jane. Tom LeFroy...(sigh).
