“Worth the Wait,” the Asian American star-studded rom-com film by Lana Condor and Andrew Koji, has been picked up by The Exchange, according to a report.
About the movie:
Set in Seattle and Kuala Lumpur, “Worth the Wait” is a “modern approach to ‘Love Actually’ with a star-studded Asian American cast,” Nat McCormick, The Exchange’s worldwide sales and distribution president, told Variety
. The film reportedly follows Asian American strangers as they find new love, mend relationships and create new connections over a year.
Film festival premiere:
“Worth the Wait” will be introduced to buyers at the European Film Market in Berlin, which takes place from Feb. 15-21 alongside
the 74th Berlin International Film Festival. The project wrapped up production in Vancouver and Kuala Lumpur last year.
What they’re saying:
In announcing the project last year, director Tom Shu-Yu Lin said he was thrilled to film in the U.S. after a 15-year career in Asia. “Growing up in both the U.S. and Taiwan, the American side of my upbringing has always been a huge part of who I am, and I am so excited to finally be able to showcase that with ‘Worth the Wait,'” he told Deadline
