‘Boat’ Star Wu Joins “Crazy Rich Asians”

“Fresh Off the Boat” star Constance Wu is set to topline filmmaker Jon M. Chu’s adaptation of Kevin Kwan’s international 2013 best seller “Crazy Rich Asians” at Warner Bros. Pictures.

Wu will play Rachel Chu who 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 bf.

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.

Peter Chiarelli and Adele Lim are penning the film while John Penotti, Nina Jacobson and Brad Simpson will produce.
