Jon M. Chu (“Now You See Me 2”) directed Crazy Rich Asians based on the acclaimed worldwide bestseller by Kevin Kwan. Color Force’s Nina Jacobson and Brad Simpson, and Ivanhoe Pictures’ John Penotti, produced the film, with executive producers Tim Coddington, Kevin Kwan, Robert Friedland and Sidney Kimmel. The screenplay is by Peter Chiarelli and Adele Lim.
The story follows New Yorker Rachel Chu (Constance Wu) as she accompanies her longtime boyfriend, Nick Young (Henry Golding), to his best friend’s wedding in Singapore. Excited about visiting Asia for the first time but nervous about meeting Nick’s family, Rachel is unprepared to learn that Nick has neglected to mention a few key details about his life. Not only is he the scion of one of the country’s wealthiest families, but also one of its most sought-after bachelors. Being on Nick’s arm puts a target on Rachel’s back, with jealous socialites and worse, Nick’s own disapproving mother (Michelle Yeoh) taking aim.
