[short version] Three wealthy Chinese families prepare for the wedding of the year.
[longer version] Based on the best-selling book, in Crazy Rich Asians, Nick Young is a history professor at NYU, and he's falling in love with fellow professor Rachel Chu. When he travels back to Singapore to attend his best friend's wedding, he brings Rachel with him. And before long, his secret is out. Nick is from a family that is worth $13 billion. He's perhaps the most eligible bachelor in Asia, and every single woman in his ultra-rarefied social class is incredibly jealous of Rachel and wants to bring her down. It's up to her to prove to his insanely privileged family that she's worthy to be his wife.

, a film adaptation of Singaporean novelist Kevin Kwan's New York Times best-selling novel with the same title.

Variety: Michelle Yeoh Joins Constance Wu in 'Crazy Rich Asians'
The novel unfolds in a world of opulence, as new and old money collide among a group of Chinese families living in Singapore. It follows Rachel Chu, a Chinese-American economics professor, who travels to her boyfriend Nick Young's hometown of Singapore for his best friend's wedding. Before long, his secret is out: Nick is from a family that is impossibly wealthy, he's perhaps the most eligible bachelor in Asia and every single woman in his ultra-rarefied social class is incredibly jealous of Rachel and wants to bring her down.
Rachel Chu will be played by American actress Constance Wu whose parents emigrated from Taiwan. Michelle will play Nick's mother, Eleanor Young, who disapproves of Rachel.
American director Jon M. Chu will be directing the film which will feature an all-Asian cast. Warner Bros. acquired the film rights in October 2016. The project announced worldwide open casting calls for some of the main roles last November. In January, Director Jon M. Chu did an international open call on social media for Asian actors/actresses.
Written in English, the novel "Crazy Rich Asians" was published in 2013. It has been translated into at least 12 languages so far, but Chinese is not one of them.
