Paul Feig, known for directing hit comedies (Spy, The Heat), tries his hand at the thriller genre with A Simple Favor. The story centers on a mommy blogger named Stephanie (Anna Kendrick) who tries to find out what happened to her missing friend (and fellow mother) Emily (Blake Lively).
Lively believes A Simple Favor’s twist filled storyline should appeal to moviegoers. “It’s fun and it’s funny and it’s visually really beautiful,” said Lively “It’s smart in a way where you get to play along and it’s engaging in a way that I really enjoy watching as an audience member.”

A Simple Favor, co-starring Henry Golding (Crazy Rich Asians), opens nationwide September 14.
