Gossip Girl actress Blake Lively and Pitch Perfect's Anna Kendrick are set to return for the sequel to the chilling 2018 thriller, A Simple Favour. The 2018 black comedy crime thriller starred the two actresses in a twisty-turny tale about infidelity and revenge, which was critically acclaimed for its stylish nature and pretty decent box office takings.

As reported by Deadline, Lionsgate has partnered up with Amazon Studios for the sequel. Not only are both actresses returning, but director Paul Feig of Bridesmaids and Ghostbusters is coming back too.

As far as things like the plot, whether it will release in cinemas or go straight to Amazon Prime Video, or who else will star... we don't know at this point!

At the time of writing, Anna Kendrick and Paul Feig haven't responded to the announcement on social media, but Blake Lively posted an Instagram Story linking to the announcement article, coupled with Taylor Swift's Look What You Made Me Do playing.
