A Hollywood movie with an entirely Asian cast (and no martial arts) is currently in the works, and we can’t wait to see it.
If you haven’t read it yet, Crazy Rich Asians, Kevin Kwan’s debut novel that was published in 2013, is kind of like The Bold and the Beautiful set in Asia. It’s about the high society lives of some VERY rich families in Singapore, which means it’s perfectly set up for lots of DRAMA.
Fans of the book were quite nervous about who would be chosen to play these crazy characters — in case you haven’t noticed, there aren’t many non-stereotypical Asian roles going around — but it looks like they’ve done a bloody good job at casting a mix of high-profile stars with up-and-comers.
Here’s the cast, as well as some fun shots they’ve shared from filming.
