The sequel to Crazy Rich Asians is planning to shoot in Shanghai, China.
As reported by Variety, the sequel will be based off China Rich Girlfriend, the second book in Kevin Kwan’s trilogy, and SK Global president John Penotti made the announcement in LA at the Chinese American Film Festival’s Co-Production Summit. Set two years after Crazy Rich Asians, China Rich Girlfriend gets its name from a line in the first film that goes “These people aren’t just everyday rich with a few hundred million. They are China rich.”
Much of the plot of the second book in the series takes place in China, though Penotti isn’t certain if the film will be made as an official China-U.S. production. While already released in most territories, Crazy Rich Asians won’t premiere in China until late November.
