‘Crazy Rich Asians’ Sequel ‘China Rich Girlfriend’ Reportedly Moving Forward With Jon M. Chu Returning To Direct

Aug 22, 2018

The times they are a changing.

Crazy Rich Asians was the first film with a majority Asian cast to be released by a major Hollywood studio in 25 years, the last film being the fantastic Joy Luck Club. The new film has already earned $39 million domestically on a budget of $30 million and is looking towards an extensive international roll-out along with another successful second domestic weekend on the horizon as the buzz on the romantic comedy could lead to some serious legs at the tail-end of the summer.

This success isn’t being unnoticed by Warner Bros.

THR reports that Warner Bros. and director Jon M. Chu are already moving forward with development on a sequel to Crazy Rich Asians. China Rich Girlfriend, the second novel from author Kevin Kwan will be adapted by returning screenwriters Peter Chiarelli and Adele Lim.

We expect some more details in the weeks to come.
