Things Get Complicated when Anna Kendrick, Blake Lively and Paul Feig “pitch” A Simple Favor

Watch the trio pitch A Simple Favor to two clueless Hollywood executives played by Thomas Lennon and Annaleigh Ashford (Broadway’s Wicked and Legally Blonde). It’s a comedic take on the absurdity of trying to get a movie made these days, especially for women and a director known for working with women.

A Simple Favor is a stylish post-modern suburban noir directed by Paul Feig that centers around Stephanie Smothers (Anna Kendrick), a mommy vlogger who seeks to uncover the truth behind her best friend Emily Nelson’s (Blake Lively) sudden disappearance from their small town. Stephanie is joined by Emily’s husband Sean (Henry Golding) in this stylish thriller filled with twists and betrayals, secrets and revelations, love and loyalty, murder and revenge.

Starring Blake Lively, Anna Kendrick, Henry Golding and directed by Paul Feig, A Simple Favor opens September 14th.
