Elizabeth Banks: I like being boss

Elizabeth Banks has revealed she would like to do more directing as she admits she loves being in charge.

The Hunger Games star is making her feature directing debut with Pitch Perfect 2, the sequel to the hit a cappella musical comedy starring Anna Kendrick, Skylar Astin, Rebel Wilson and Brittany Snow, which Elizabeth also co-starred in and produced.

Elizabeth said: "I hope [to do more directing]. I think so. We'll see, I did enjoy it. I definitely like being the boss!"

And she revealed Pitch Perfect fans are in for a treat.

She said: "We're very excited too. It's great, the cast is all back with some really amazing new cameos, some great songs, an incredible villain this time around. The rival group is played by this incredible group of Germans - just amazing singer-dancers."

And the 40-year-old mother of two also really enjoyed reuniting with Jennifer Lawrence and the rest of the Hunger Games cast on The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1.

Elizabeth said: "It's great, and it's the loveliest group of people, we all genuinely have a lovely time working together."

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 is out in cinemas now.
