“Crazy Rich Asians” follows American-born Chinese economics professor Rachel Chu, played by Wu, who travels to Singapore with her history professor boyfriend Nick Young (Golding) to his hometown of Singapore for the wedding of his best friend Colin Khoo, played by Chris Pang.

She eventually discovers that Nick comes from an incredibly wealthy family and that he’s the most eligible bachelor in Asia, with every woman in his hometown wanting to take Rachel out of the picture.

As reported by The Hollywood Reporter, Shum is set to play Astrid Leong’s (Chan) ex-boyfriend.
