A sequel to the 2018 Paul Feig-directed hit A Simple Favor is in the works with original stars Anna Kendrick and Blake Lively set to return, per Deadline. Lionsgate, the studio behind the first film, is teaming with Amazon Studios for the follow-up. Jessica Sharzer, who wrote the original’s screenplay, will pen the new script. In the first film, a single vlogger mother (Kendrick) befriends an upperclass socialite (Lively) and, when the latter goes missing, the vlogger investigates. It reached critical acclaim and made a solid penny at the box office for Lionsgate (approximately $97 million worldwide), while also leaving things open for a follow-up. Wish granted.
