Singapore's elite rich are far from insane

Henry Golding and Constance Wu

Production on "China Rich Girlfriend" and "Rich People Problems", the follow-up books to "Crazy Rich Asians" in Kevin Kwan's trilogy, will be overseen by Color Force ("The Hunger Games") and Ivanhoe Productions ("Crazy Rich Asians"). Pictures is already moving forward on a Crazy Rich Asians sequel. Chu is now prepping the big screen version of Lin-Manuel Miranda's musical In the Heights, which Warners is scheduled to release on June 26, 2020.

According to Singapore's Straits Times, Kwan's family moved to Texas when he was 11, but as his appeal to renounce his Singaporean citizenship without completing NS was rejected, he could still find himself in legal jeopardy should he return to the country.

While it has been widely praised in the United States, the movie has drawn flak in Singapore for focusing on the wealthy ethnic Chinese and ignoring the country's substantial minorities. Sound off in the comments, and we'll keep you updated as we hear more on China Rich Girlfriend 's probable 2020 release.

Is Elon Musk's backer Pif, or just piffle?
Tesla has marketed its top-of-the-line models that boast head-snapping acceleration as having "Insane" and "Ludicrous" modes. Musk added that his electric vehicle company and Ford are the only two American automakers that have avoided bankruptcy.

The story follows native New Yorker Rachel Chu (Constance Wu) as she accompanies her longtime boyfriend, Nick Young (Henry Golding), to his best friend's wedding in Singapore. Plus, Rachel and Nick still have to get married. And it soon becomes clear that while money can't buy love, it can definitely complicate things.

But the scenes of excess are a far cry from the true lifestyles of Singapore's ultra-wealthy, who often lead more conservative, low-key existences than their peers in other parts of Asia. The screenplay is by Peter Chiarelli and Adele Lim, based on the novel Crazy Rich Asians, by Kwan. Also joining the project are producers Nina Jacobson, Brad Simpson, and John Penotti.

Crazy Rich Asians may be going gangbusters at the US box office but that won't stop Singapore authorities from reminding author Kevin Kwan that rules are rules. It is set for release on August 17, 2018.
