"Pitch Perfect" star Anna Kendrick is drawn into a dark mystery involving her new best friend in the official trailer for the twisty missing-person thriller "A Simple Favor," which also stars Blake Lively.

Based on Darcey Bell's best-selling mystery novel, the film is directed by Paul Feig, the noted director of "Bridesmaids" and "Spy," who seems to have stepped away from his typical comedy bits to tackle something that looks much more shadowy and darker than anything he's done before.

Part-neo-noir thriller, part-"Gone Girl" and "The Girl on the Train"-like mystery drama, the film sees Kendrick as a young mommy vlogger named Stephanie, who, one day, strikes up a friendship with one of the mothers at her daughter's school -- a sophisticated PR executive named Emily (Lively). But when Emily suddenly goes missing, Stephanie feels compelled to conduct her own private investigation, which draws her into a web of secrets and lies.

Written for the screen by Jessica Sharzer (producer-writer of the "American Horror Story" series and screenwriter of the truth-or-dare-inspired thriller "Nerve") and co-starring Henry Golding (star of the upcoming rom-com "Crazy Rich Asians"), "A Simple Favor" will be hitting theaters September 14th. Watch the trailer, above.
