Margot Robbie, Elizabeth Banks team up for 'Paper Bag Princess'

Margot Robbie, Elizabeth Banks team up for 'Paper Bag Princess'”

Elizabeth Banks and Margot Robbie are set to team for a film adaptation of Robert Munsch's children's book classic 'The Paper Bag Princess, ' THR has learned. She eventually saves her kingdom and her prince, but when the prince chides her for not looking like a proper princess, she calls him a "bum" and ventures off into the sunset by herself.

The tale centres on Princess Elizabeth, who in a resourceful and humorous fashion, finds and captures the dragon that has attacked her castle and kidnapped her beau. It's a fun subversion of the usual fairytale tropes, and it clearly won the hearts of readers, selling ten million copies worldwide. If that script is strong, and if the schedules align, Robbie is expected to star in the movie.

Katie Silberman is attached to write the screenplay.

Vice president of production Sara Scott will oversee the project on behalf of Universal.

Banks, who last directed Pitch Perfect 2, is also prepping to helm a new big-screen take on Charlie's Angels for Sony. Her prince charming also gets captured.

Banks is represented by UTA, Untitled Entertainment, and Ziffren Brittenham LLP.

Robbie is likely to star in the project but it is not certain at this time. The movie, which the actress also produced with Unkeless, is generating awards chatter ahead of its December 8 release. Robbie and LuckyChap are represented by CAA, Management 360, and attorney Jeff Bernstein.
