Henry Golding Is Starring In Yet Another Hollywood Film With Anna Kendrick & Blake Lively
And it's only his second acting gig! #power
Wow, Henry Golding is definitely making his mark in Hollywood! Having just finished filming for 'Crazy Rich Asians', the former 8TV Quickie Host already has another gig lined up.
Golding is set to star as the male lead in the upcoming thriller 'A Simple Favor' alongside Anna Kendrick and Blake Lively, with Paul Feig in the director's chair
'A Simple Favor' also marks Feig's (pictured below) first foray into thriller films, having already become a prominent figure in the comedy genre with critically-acclaimed films like 'Bridesmaids', 'Spy', and 'Ghostbusters'.
Based on a murder mystery novel by Darcey Bell, 'A Simple Favor' centres on mommy blogger Stephanie (Kendrick), who seeks to uncover the truth behind her best friend Emily's (Lively) sudden disappearance from their small town
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:
