Photos From the Cast of Crazy Rich Asians Will Get You Excited for the Film

Kris Aquino might just be one of them!


( It looks like the cast of the movie adaptation of the 2013 bestseller Crazy Rich Asians by Kevin Kwan is excited to start filming, judging by their Instagram snaps of the set and their rehearsals. And while she hasn't confirmed her role in the film, it appears that Kris Aquino is also getting cozy with the cast. She flew to Singapore with her baggage filled with gowns “befitting a princess” by Michael Levya and Michal Cinco.



The novel tells the story of New York professor Rachel Chu who goes to Singapore with her boyfriend Nick Young to attend a friend's wedding. Rachel soon discovers Nick’s old-money world and the rest of his family and friends who are all part of Asia’s elite.


Some of the confirmed cast members include Fresh Off the Boat star Constance Wu as Rachel Chu, Singapore TV host Henry Golding as Nick Young, and Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon actress Michelle Yeoh as Nick’s disapproving mother.



Also confirmed cast members are Glee alum Harry Shum Jr., Humans’ Gemma Chan, Marco Polo’s Remy Hii and Chris Pang, comedian Ken Jeong, Sonoya Mizuno from Ex Machina, The Daily Show’s Ronnie Chieng, Silicon Valley’s Jimmy Yang, and New York-based rapper Awkwafina.


Another Filipino actor joining the cast is Nico Santos who is known for his role in the American comedy series, Superstore.


We don't know about you, but these photos from the cast are making us extra excited for the movie:
