The cast of Warner Bros.’ “Crazy Rich Asians” keeps growing, with Japanese actress Sonoya Mizuno being the latest to hop onboard the project.
She will play Araminta, the soon-to-be bride of Nick’s (Golding) best friend, Colin, who also happens to be a major fashion icon in Singapore, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
Directed by Jon M. Chu with Kwan and Ivanhoe chairman Robert Friedland serving as executive producers, “Crazy Rich Asians” follows Chinese-American economics professor Rachel Chu (Wu), who travels to her boyfriend Nick’s hometown in Singapore for his best friend’s wedding.
Rachel discovers that Nick is the heir to an extremely wealthy family and is the most eligible bachelor in Asia, and every woman in this upper class society wants her out of the picture.
Mizuno played the AI assistant Kyoko in Alex Garland’s 2014 sci-fi thriller “Ex Machina” opposite Oscar Isaac, and will star in the follow-up film, “Annihilation”.
The Japanese-born ballerina-turned-actress also appeared as one of Emma Stone’s roommates, Caitlin, in “La La Land,” and will be seen in MGM’s post apocalyptic love story, “The Domestics.”
The all-Asian cast of “Crazy Rich Asians” just keeps getting better and better, so dance like nobody’s watching.
