The sequel to Warner Bros.’ 2018 surprise hit ‘Crazy Rich Asians’ seems to be back on track after two and a half years in development limbo, with a new Chinese-Australian screenwriter, Amy Wang, taking on sole writing duties replacing Peter Chiarelli and Adele Lim following a 2019 controversy.
Amy Wang is currently writing and directing a horror film for Paramount Players/QC Entertainment, and she has also directed episodes of Starz’s Blindspotting and Facebook’s The Birch. She is also involved in the making of Netflix’s ‘The Brothers Sun’ and has also worked for ‘From Scratch’ (2022). She also won the Cannes Lion award for the short film ‘Unnatural’ in 2018.
The sequel to ‘Crazy Rich Asians’ will still star the cast of the first film, Henry Golding and Constance Wu. However, the plot and further details are still being kept secret for the anticipated sequel, with a third film also planned.
However, Golding mentioned the ‘Crazy Rich Asians’ sequel earlier this month. In an interview with E! News, Golding, mentioned the Crazy Rich Asians sequel earlier this month.
“I always bug (director Jon M. Chu) about it, and he tells him the same thing every time: They’re trying to figure out the writing. I know they’re working on it, but hopefully sooner than later,” he said.
The film ‘Crazy Rich Asian’ tells the story of Rachel Chu (Constance Wu), a Chinese-American who is shaken up when she learns that her boyfriend, Nick Young (Henry Golding) comes from one of the richest families in Singapore.
Just like its predecessor, the sequel to Crazy Rich Asians will be based on the novel by Kevin Kwan. The story is wrapped in the trilogy Crazy Rich Asians (2013), Crazy Rich Girlfriend (2015), and Rich People Problems (2017).
