Blake Lively and Anna Kendrick are set to reunite on the sequel of “A Simple Favor”, which premiered in 2018!
Based on the 2017 novel of the same name, 2018’s A Simple Favor followed the story of Stephanie (Kendrick), a widowed mother with a parenting vblog who ends up becoming BFF with cool suburban, upper-class fashion plate Emily (Lively). When Emily suddenly goes missing, Stephanie begins to investigate her disappearance, but as the mystery unravels, Stephanie ends up in a situation much more complicated and sinister than she signed up for.
Anna Kendrick and director Paul Feig are excited for the sequel
“I can’t wait to revisit the hilarious, deeply dark inner world of Stephanie Smothers, and reunite Stephanie and Emily under the watchful and stylish eye of the glorious Paul Feig,” Kendrick told EW.
“A Simple Favor is one of my favorite films I’ve ever made and it’s all because of the amazing writing of Jessica Sharzer and our stunning, hilarious cast headed by my brilliant heroes Anna and Blake. Expect more stylish twists and turns than Ralph Lauren making pretzels while driving down Lombard Street,” Feig told EW.
No other information about the sequel has been announced. However, the orgiinal movie left much space to a possible sequel – and we’re glad they decided to go for it! In 2018, the film earned more than $97 million at the box office and garnered positive reviews
Lionsgate and Amazon Studios are partnering on the follow-up film, which will reunite original stars Lively and Kendrick with director Paul Feig. Feig is set to produce alongside Laura Fischer, with original screenwriter Jessica Scharzer also returning to write the script.
