Crazy Rich Asians Sequel Plans to Shoot in Shanghai

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.

Michelle Yeoh Will Appear in ‘Crazy Rich Asians’ Film Adaptation

In honor of Taiwanese brand Shiatzy Chen’s 40th anniversary, friends and fans of the house took over the basement of the Palais de Tokyo, painted in vivid colors. In the front row was a mix of up-and-coming faces such as “Reign” and “Teen Wolf” actress Adelaide Kane or French actress Luna Besson, but also industry heavyweight Michelle Yeoh.
The opulent collection would fit right into Yeoh’s upcoming role as Eleanor Sung-Young in “Crazy Rich Asians,” directed by Jon M. Chu and adapted from Kevin Kwan’s best-selling novel of the same name. She will also star a comedy director and respected action choreographer’s Yuen Woo-Ping.
Comedic value aside, the Asian action star is a firm supporter of women empowerment. “[Helping women being financially independent] helps families and nations to grow,” she said.

Crazy Rich Asians

Crazy Rich Asians

“Crazy Rich Asians” is the outrageously funny debut novel about three super-rich, pedigreed Chinese families and the gossip, backbiting, and scheming that occurs when the heir to one of the most massive fortunes in Asia brings home his ABC (American-born Chinese) girlfriend to the wedding of the season. When Rachel Chu agrees to spend the summer in Singapore with her boyfriend, Nicholas Young, she envisions a humble family home, long drives to explore the island, and quality time with the man she might one day marry. What she doesn’t know is that Nick’s family home happens to look like a palace, that she’ll ride in more private planes than cars, and that with one of Asia’s most eligible bachelors on her arm, Rachel might as well have a target on her back. Initiated into a world of dynastic splendor beyond imagination, Rachel meets Astrid, the It Girl of Singapore society; Eddie, whose family practically lives in the pages of the Hong Kong socialite magazines; and Eleanor, Nick’s formidable mother, a woman who has very strong feelings about who her son should–and should not–marry. Uproarious, addictive, and filled with jaw-dropping opulence, “Crazy Rich Asians” is an insider’s look at the Asian JetSet; a perfect depiction of the clash between old money and new money; between Overseas Chinese and Mainland Chinese; and a fabulous novel about what it means to be young, in love, and gloriously, “crazily” rich.
