Crazy Rich Asians is heading the big screen—and with an all-Asian cast, no less. Based on the international best-seller by Kevin Kwan, the new film will tell the story of three ultra-wealthy Chinese families living in Singapore, and what happens when one of their sons brings his American-born Chinese girlfriend—who will reportedly be played by Constance Wu—home to meet the parents.

Director Jon M. Chu made headlines last year when he revealed his plans for the film.

Now, that aforementioned cast is coming together. Per Vulture, in addition to Wu, the film will feature Henry Golding, a relative unknown as Rachel's boyfriend, and Michelle Yeoh, perhaps best known for her role in Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon as Nick's mom Eleanor.

Ken Jeong (Community, Dr. Ken), Sonoya Mizuno (Ex Machina), Gemma Chan (Humans), and Harry Shum Jr. (Glee) are also among those who will star in the film.

"I am beyond thrilled that the amazing films my fans around the world have been waiting for is finally happening," Kwan said. "I have such tremendous respect and trust in Nina [Jacobson], Brad [Simpson], Jon [Chu], and Warner Bros, and I know they are going to create an incredible, history-making movie."
