‘Crazy Rich Asians’ Sequel in Works With Jon M. Chu to Direct

‘Crazy Rich Asians’ Sequel in Works With Jon M. Chu to Direct

The Ministry of Defence said Kwan had failed to register for National Service (NS) in 1990, despite notices and letters sent to his overseas address, and he had also stayed overseas without a valid exit permit. Director Jon M. Chu is also planning to return and direct the sequels as soon as the script is ready and Warner Bros gives its full green-light."Let the audience ask for the sequel", Nina Jacobson told Deadline in an interview.

The film had its Singapore premiere Tuesday, with some of its stars gracing the red carpet and hundreds of fans turning out - but Kwan was conspicuous by his absence, Singapore's Straits Times newspaper reported. "Mr Kwan is therefore wanted for defaulting on his NS obligations", the statement continued. If convicted of draft-dodging, Kwan faces a three-year prison sentence and a fine of up to $7,300 (S$10,000). However, the nation turned down that renunciation, saying that Kwan would have to serve out the mandatory two years of national service in the police or civic defense force that all men must serve after the age of 18.

"Crazy Rich Asians" topped the domestic box office last weekend when it opened with a five-day total of $35 million. In an interview with ST previous year, he has said he himself is not a insane rich Asian but that he comes from a well-connected family.
