Malaysian actress, Michelle Yeoh, joins her fellow “Crazy Rich Asians” star, Henry Golding, in the Paul Feig-directed comedy “Last Christmas.”
The movie, which will feature the music of George Michael and his song of the same title, is scheduled for release on Nov. 15 next year, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
“Last Christmas” follows the story of an elf named Kate (Emilia Clarke), in her year-round Christmas shop who started dating Tom (Golding), a man who seems to be too good to be true and starts to see through so many of her barriers, said in the report.
Feig, while being the director of the holiday comedy set in London, England will serve as the movie’s producer through his FeigCo company alongside Jessie Henderson and David Livingstone. Written by Bryony Kimmings and Emma Thompson, Thompson will also serve as a producer for the film.
Yeoh and Golding first worked together in the mega hit Asian-American movie “Crazy Rich Asians” directed by Jon M. Chu. It was adapted from the book of the same title written by Kevin Kwan.
