Anna Kendrick & Blake Lively In Talks To Star In ‘A Simple Favor’
Anna Kendrick is in negotiations to star in the thriller A Simple Favor and Blake Lively is in talks to join her. The project is in the process of being set up at Lionsgate, we’re told. However, it wasn’t certain that director Paul Feig, who was developing the project, would still be attached to direct.
A Simple Favor, which was brought into Fox 2000 in a pre-emptive deal a year ago, is about a mommy blogger in a small town and her best friend who suddenly vanishes. The murder mystery is based on book by Darcey Bell that sold as part of a two-book deal from HarperCollins.
Kendrick’s third installment of the Pitch Perfect franchise is scheduled for release on December 22. Lively stars in the September 17 releasing film All I See Is You from Open Road.
The news of Kendrick and Lively’s talks was first reported by the Tracking Board.
