Golding rounds up the cast as Sean, Emily's husband in what Hollywood Reporter calls a "thriller filled with twists and betrayals, secrets and revelations, love and loyalty, murder and revenge".

Released in March 2017, 'A Simple Favor' has already garnered comparisons to best-selling thrillers 'Gone Girl' and 'The Girl on the Train', both of which were developed into films in 2014 and 2016 respectively.

Production for the movie is expected to start in Toronto on 14 August. A release date has yet to be confirmed.

This will be Golding's second acting project after nabbing a coveted leading role in not just his first Hollywood film, but his first ever acting gig:
