‘A Simple Favor’ is an upcoming American mystery thriller film directed by Paul Feig and written by Jessica Sharzer. Based on the novel of the same name by Darcey Bell, the film stars Anna Kendrick and Black Lively and follows a blogger who tries to solve the disappearance of her rich best friend.
Blake Lively made headlines related to the film a few months prior when she suddenly deleted all her photos on her Instagram. Before the marketing efforts of the film, Blake posted a cryptic photo featuring a hangman game with the phrase “What happened to Emily?” a reference to the movie. She then resulted to only following people named “Emily Nelson” – her character’s full name.
A Simple Favor promises to show “the darker side of Paul Feig,” the director behind comedic cult favorites like Bridesmaids, Spy, and Freaks and Geeks.
“You got a lot going on in this,” told MTV about the transition. “It’s a straight up thriller. But it’s a fun thriller. A friller as I call it.”
Anna added, “there are so many twists and turns. There are twists on twists on twists. There are more twists than a gin martini, baby”.
A Simple Favor will be released this September 14th.
