It's Happening: A 'Crazy Rich Asians' Sequel Is Moving Forward

It's Happening: A 'Crazy Rich Asians' Sequel Is Moving Forward

Kwan left Singapore at age 11, first moving to Texas with his family, and has lived in the United States since then, Singapore media said.

Kwan "failed to register for the National Service in 1990, despite notices and letters sent to his overseas address", responded a ministry official.

The romantic comedy about an Asian-American New Yorker, who goes to Singapore to meet her boyfriend's wealthy and tradition-bound family of Chinese descent, is based on the 2013 best-selling book of the same name by Kevin Kwan. 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 defence ministry said Kwan sought to renounce his Singapore citizenship in 1994, but his application and a subsequent appeal were rejected due to his failure to complete national service. "Mr Kwan has committed offenses under the Enlistment Act, and is liable to a fine of up to $10,000 and/or imprisonment of up to three years upon conviction".

Turkey hits back at USA with tariff hikes on key products
Turkey's exports to the United States previous year amounted to $8.7 billion, making it Turkey's fifth-largest export market. Tariffs on American cars were doubled to 120 percent while the tariff on alcoholic drinks rose to 140 percent.

The timing of the announcement is somewhat curious, just as Kwan is basking in the success of a ground-breaking hit in the US but it comes after Singaporean media approached Government officials for comment on Kwan's status. In an interview with ST past year, he has said he himself is not a insane rich Asian but that he comes from a well-connected family. Being on Nick's arm puts a target on Rachel's back, with jealous socialites and, worse, Nick's own disapproving mother (Michelle Yeoh) taking aim.

Greetings from Singapore, the setting for this summer's surprise box office hit, Crazy Rich Asians.

For the most part, those in the crowd loved what they saw.
