Paul Feig continues on his personal mission to give us gifts in the form of powerful lady team-ups. This time, it’s Kerry Washington and Charlize Theron playing best friends and the Deans of The School of Good and Evil.

The movie is based on the bestselling series of the same name by Soman Chainani, which follows two best friends at a magical school where students are trained to become fairytale villains and heroes. The BFFs, Sophie and Agatha, will be played by Sophia Anne Caruso and Sofia Wylie, respectively, which I’m sure will be totally not at all confusing on set.

And Theron is Lady Lesso, the Dean of the School of Evil.

I do like this about Paul Feig. I just wish I could actually find these team-ups funny, but I just can’t. The three film I’ve seen of him: The Heat, Ghostbusters: Answer the Call and Spy just weren’t funny or engaging to me. There were chuckles here and there, for sure, but no more than that. This sounds like a killer premise, so I am disappointed Feig is doing it :(

But hey, Charlize Theron as an evil dean? At least I'll have somrthing magnificent to look at.
