Anna Kendrick and Blake Lively Return for A SIMPLE FAVOR 2; Allison Janney Joins Cast

Anna Kendrick And Blake Lively To Star In A Simple Favor 2

A sequel to the 2018 hit mystery comedy "A Simple Favor" is in the works from Lionsgate and Amazon Studios. Anna Kendrick, Blake Lively and director Paul Feig are all set to return, while Oscar winner Allison Janney has joined the cast.

The first film was based on the 2017 novel of the same name, which told the story of a widowed single mother named Stephanie (Kendrick), a vlogger in Connecticut who looks enviously upon her best friend, Emily (Lively). Emily has a successful career, a loving family and a glamorous lifestyle. However, things turn awry when Emily mysteriously disappears one day, causing Stephanie to launch her own investigation into her friend's past, finding more than a few surprises along the way.

The sequel finds Stephanie and Emily heading to the beautiful island of Capri, Italy, for Emily's extravagant wedding to a rich Italian businessman. Along with the glamorous guests, expect murder and betrayal to RSVP for a wedding with more twists and turns than the road from the Marina Grande to the Capri town square.

Henry Golding, Andrew Rannells, Bashir Salahuddin, Joshua Satine, Ian Ho, Kelly McCormack and Aparna Nancherla will reprise their roles from the previous film. Other newcomers include Elena Sofia Ricci, Michele Morrone, Elizabeth Perkins, Alex Newell, Taylor Ortega and Lorenzo de Moor.

The script, which is based on characters by Darcy Bell, was written by Jessica Sharzer, with revisions by Laeta Kalogridis, Steve Yockey, and Feig.

"A Simple Favor 2" will be available to stream on Prime Video in more than 240 countries and territories worldwide.
