Cape Town – Jon M. Chu's comedy Crazy Rich Asians is about to get a sequel.

While it hasn’t been officially greenlit yet it is in development says the Entertainment Weekly.

The news comes after the film grossed $44.4 million at the Northern American box office in its first weekend on circuit. 

Based on the novel by Kevin Kwan, Crazy Rich Asians follows Rachel (Constance Wu) a young Asian-American woman who travels to meet her boyfriend's family (Henry Golding), only to find them to be among the richest in Singapore.
