Have We Seen The Last Of Effie In 'Hunger Games'? Elizabeth Banks Weighs In

The odds may or may not be in her favor.

If you're not quite ready to the leave the "Hunger Games" arena yet, don't worry: neither is Elizabeth Banks.

At a press day for "Pitch Perfect 2," Banks' directorial debut, the actress said that she would be open to revisiting the Capitol-born character, Katniss' mentor in "The Hunger Games" series.

"I love Effie, I miss her dearly," Banks said.

Could we be seeing a return to the wigs and wild makeup of yore for Banks even after November's "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2," the final planned film in the franchise? Perhaps an origin story? "Effie: Beginnings" has a certain ring to it.

"If people want more, I'm definitely up for it," she said. "I just love Effie, so sure."

"Pitch Perfect 2" hits theaters May 15.
