‘Crazy Rich Asians’ sequel adds Colette Bing to the cast


The 2018 box office hit sensation Crazy Rich Asians is getting a sequel, with new cast additions!

Based on the book of Kevin Kwan, the second and third film installment of the trilogy will begin filming this year. This means that the viewers can not expect the sequel of Crazy Rich Asians too soon.

Needed information and spoilers for the second film of “Crazy Rich Asians”

The second film is based on the sophomore novel of Kevin Kwan, China Rich Girlfriend. There is some information from the book that would be able to surmise the cast and plot.

According to a report, it is safe for the viewers to assume that the original cast members, if not all, will be returning the second time around. The book sees the arrival of new exciting characters who will pave the way for the film’s plot.

The role of Colette Bing

The brother of Rachel, Carlton Bao, is one of the new additions. So far, the most exciting cast member is, from a fashion perspective, Colette Bing. She is a Chinese mega-blogger who dresses from head to toe couture all day.

Gemma Chan, who played Astrid’s character, confirmed that the second and third movies would be filmed in 2020. This likely means that the second movie will not be released this year, and it is moreover late 2021.

The second movie tells the story of Rachel, who wanted to reconnect with her birth father. The previous film reveals to her that her father died in a car accident before she was born.

However, with Nick’s mother’s help for the private investigating efforts, Rachel discovered that her father is alive and well. It so happens that he is one of the wealthiest men in China.

Colette Bing: Lana Condor

By far, the most popular choice to be Colette is Lana Condor. She is the American star of the popular Netflix’s To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before. She was given a hint with the Crazy Rich Asians 2 cast before.

Colette Bing: Hannah Quinlivan

Although there is still no official casting decision, Taiwanese actress and model Hannah Quinlivan can take Colette’s glamorous role.

From her experience in the fashion industry, Hannah can slay Colette’s character and the elaborate outfits.

Colette Bing: Heart Evangelista

The Filipino actress, socialite, and TV host, Heart Evangelista, is tipped as possible cast for Colette’s role after traveling to China and dropped hints that she had a “major secret.”

To date, the possible cast for the upcoming movie Crazy Rich Asians 2 is still on the wraps. Some artists have to take time to commit to their roles due to the COVID-19 global pandemic.
