Gunn posted a Facebook status regarding the reunion with Banks, "Many of you know Elizabeth Banks has been one of my close friends ever since she starred in my directorial debut "Slither" (2006 movie).

"What most of you don't know is that we have tried repeatedly to team up again since that time - or, more accurately, I have tried to get her to do something in almost every movie I've made since then, but the project was never exactly right for her."

The upcoming horror movie will begin production this spring and is set for a 2020 release.
