Blake Lively’s filmography runs the gamut. Of course, she’s best known for playing Serena van der Woodsen on The CW’s hit series Gossip Girl, but her range extends far past the Upper East Side. She battled a man-eating shark in The Shallows, remained ageless (literally) in The Age of Adaline, and wore the same pair of jeans for days in Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants.
One role she hasn’t played, however, is prison inmate—well, she has now. Photos surfaced this week of Lively on the set of her new film, A Simple Favor, and she’s serving some serious Orange Is the New Black vibes in them. And by that we mean she’s wearing an orange prison jumpsuit. Yup. Check it out for yourself, below:
Here’s what we know about A Simple Favor: It’s based on the novel of the same name by Darcey Bell and centers on a mommy blogger (Anna Kendrick), her best friend who goes missing (Lively), and the latter’s husband (Henry Golding). Lively was photographed on set a few weeks ago crying with a fake black eye, so this film is pretty dramatic.
Why Lively’s character ends up in jail is a mystery to everyone who hasn’t read the novel. These tiny previews suggest A Simple Favor is the most intense film Lively has ever done—yes, even more harrowing than killing a 20-foot monster shark by herself.
But Serena lovers shouldn’t completely freak out: There’s still a little bit of dazzle in Lively’s jumpsuit look. Notice how her shirt is slightly tied up. You have to accessorize in some way, am I right?
A Simple Favor is slated for a 2018 release.
