“Crazy Rich Asians 2” Is Some Time Away

Crazy Rich Asians Retains Box Office Crown

The proposed “Crazy Rich Asians” follow-up, currently titled “China Rich Girlfriend,” is some time off according to the first film’s leading lady Constance Wu.

The actress, speaking at Vulture Festival in Los Angeles on Saturday, says that the delay is mostly due to director Jon Chu’s busy schedule: “I don’t know much about the production side of things, But I know that Jon wants to direct the next one, and all next year he’s directing ‘In The Heights’.”

Wu also says she isn’t sure if the plan is still to follow the next two books in Kevin Kwan’s bestselling novel series, but those involved have no plans to do the project without Chu’s involvement.
