Anna Kendrick & Blake Lively are teaming up again

According to Deadline, we're getting a sequel to A Simple Favor, four years after the original film's release.

Blake Lively and Anna Kendrick are reprising their roles with Paul Feig returning to direct and produce.

The original 2018 movie followed the story of mommy vlogger Stephanie, played by Kendrick, and her pal Emily, played by Lively.

Stephanie and Emily, whose children go to the same school, become best friends in a very short space of time.

One day, Emily goes missing from their small town, nowhere to be found.

Stephanie takes it upon herself to investigate her best friend's sudden disappearance.

Also starring Henry Golding, A Simple Favor is described as a, 'stylish thriller filled with twists and betrayals, secrets and revelations, love and loyalty, murder and revenge.'

According to IMDB, the film had an estimated budget of $20m, and brought in over $97m in box office earnings worldwide.

No further details about the sequel have been released, but nonetheless, we're excited!
