Elizabeth Banks to Star in Medical Drama A MISTAKE

Elizabeth Banks to Star in Medical Drama A MISTAKE
Elizabeth Banks will star in the medical drama "A Mistake" written and directed by Christine Jeffs ("Sunshine Cleaning", "Sylvia") based on a novel by Carl Shuker.

The film follows Elizabeth Taylor (Banks), a gifted surgeon and the only female consultant at her hospital. But while operating on a young woman, something goes horribly wrong. In the midst of a new scheme to publicly report surgeons' performance, Taylor's colleagues begin to close ranks, and her life is thrown into disarray. Tough and abrasive, she has survived and succeeded in this most demanding field. But can she survive a single mistake?

Cornerstone Films will launch international sales in Cannes on the GFC Films production, and is co-repping the U.S. together with UTA Independent Film Group. Film financing has been offered by the New Zealand Film Commission and Te Puna Kairangi, the New Zealand government's Premium Productions for International Audiences Fund.

Filming is expected to begin on August 15 in New Zealand. Jeffs will produce alongside Matthew Metcalfe ("McLaren", "Dean Spanley"). Cornerstone's Alison Thompson and Mark Gooder are executive producing.

Banks will next be seen opposite Sigourney Weaver in "Call Jane", and is set to star in the Apple film "The Beanie Bubble", which also stars Zach Galifianakis and Sarah Snook.
