Lionsgate and Amazon Studios have announced that a sequel to the 2018 hit mystery-comedy film “A Simple Favor” is coming. The sequel will bring back stars Anna Kendrick and Blake Lively, as well as Paul Feig to direct.
In the first film, Anna Kendrick stars as mommy blogger Stephanie Smothers, who forms an unlikely friendship with martini-drinking, effortlessly cool mom Emily Nelson (Lively). Once Emily goes missing, Stephanie takes matters into her own hands and begins investigating her disappearance. Once a body is found with Emily’s DNA, twists and turns, as well as lesbian subtext, becomes the special du jour. There’s no telling where they’re gonna take the sequel.
Jessica Sharzer is also returning to write the screenplay, with Laura Fischer on as a producer.
