Elizabeth Banks has joined the cast of STXfilms' puppet comedy The Happytime Murders.

The Hunger Games actress joins Melissa McCarthy and Maya Rudolph in the project, which is being directed by Brian Henson.

The Happytime Murders takes place in the underbelly of Los Angeles, where humans and puppets coexist but puppets are viewed as second-class citizens. When the puppet castmembers of a beloved 1980s children's TV show begin turning up dead, two clashing detectives — one human and the other a puppet — are forced to work together to solve the mystery.
