New Action Film Reunites “Crazy Rich Asians” Stars Michelle Yeoh and Awkwafina
An “interdimensional action film” produced by the Russo brothers will reunite Crazy Rich Asians stars Michelle Yeoh (楊紫瓊) and Awkwafina, kickstarting a new Hollywood epic for Asian Americans.
Crazy Rich Asians, directed by Jon M. Chu (朱浩偉), is Hollywood’s latest craze, hitting a worldwide gross of US$143.9 million. Starring Constance Wu (吳恬敏), Henry Golding, Gemma Chan (陳靜), Nico Santos, Lisa Lu (盧燕), Ken Jeong, Awkwafina, and Michelle Yeoh, Crazy Rich Asians is the first Hollywood studio production to feature an all-Asian cast since The Joy Luck Club in 1993.
According to the report, Michelle and Awkwafina’s new movie, Everything Everywhere All At Once, will be directed by Swiss Army Man directors Daniel Kwan (關家永) and Daniel Scheinert. The film will be produced by brothers Anthony and Joe Russo, known for their work in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
In a post-credit scene for 2017’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, it was revealed that Michelle would star as the superhero Aleta Ogord for Vol. 3, but with the director being fired from the franchise, the sequel’s production is currently in limbo.
