Crazy Rich Asians has landed a se­quel just a week af­ter the movie opened with $34 mil­lion in North Amer­ica. It has been open­ing through­out Asia this week. The movie adap­ta­tion of Kevin Kwan’s best­selling book of the same name was the first ma­jor Hol­ly­wood pro­duc­tion to boast an al­most all-Asian lineup in 25 years, since 1993’s The Joy Luck Club. Its open­ing is the big­gest de­but for a ro­man­tic com­edy since Amy Schumer’s 2015 re­lease, Train­wreck. The fol­lowup, based on Kwan’s sec­ond book, China Rich Girl­friend, will ex­plore the ro­mance be­tween char­ac­ters Char­lie and Astrid, played by former Glee star Harry Shum Jr. and Gemma Chan, The Hol­ly­wood Re­porter says.
