Bridesmaids director Paul Feig turns his hand to fantasy in The School For Good And Evil, here’s the first trailer.
Paul Feig has had quite the run of films. From 2015’s terrific Spy, through 2016’s Ghostbusters and then making the excellent thriller A Simple Favour, Feig has never been one to stick to one genre.
This brings us to The School For Good And Evil, his latest movie which is heading to Netflix shortly. The official synopsis reads as follows:
“The film centers around best friends Sophie and Agatha, who are about to discover where fairytale legacies go to school: The School for Good and Evil,” reads the synopsis. “Sophie knows she’ll be picked for the School of Good and join alums like Cinderella and Snow White, while Agatha knows she’s fit for the Evil School. However, when their fortunes are reversed, their friendship is put to the test, and the girls discover who they really are.”
Sophia Anne Caruso and Sofia Wylie lead the film as Sophie and Agatha, alongside a starry cast that includes Charlize Theron as Lady Lesso, Kerry Washington as Professor Dovey, Laurence Fishburne as The School Master/Rafal Mistral, and Michelle Yeoh as Professor Anemone. Also featuring in the film are Ben Kingsley, Rachel Bloom, Pattie LuPone, Rob Delaney, Mark Heap, Peter Serafinowicz, Jamie Flatters, Earl Cave, Emma Lau, Kit Young, and Briony Scarlett.
Feig directs from a script by Life Of Pi writer David Magee and comic turned screenwriter Laura Solon, based on the novel by Soman Chainani.
The School For Good And Evil will land on Netflix on the 21st October. Watch the trailer below…
