The film from director Jon M. Chu ("Now You See Me 2"), will star Gemma Chan, Michelle Yeoh, Constance Wu, Ken Jeong, Harry Shum Jr., Jimmy O. Yang and Sonoya Mizuno.

The August 2018 release date is also shared by upcoming films "Happytime Murders," "Captive State" and "Three Seconds."

Based on Kwan's novel of the same name, "Crazy Rich Asians" follows a Chinese-American economics professor who attends a wedding in Singapore with her boyfriend and finds out that he is the heir to a massive fortune.

"'Crazy Rich Asians' follows native New Yorker Rachel Chu as she accompanies her longtime boyfriend, Nick Young, to his best friend's wedding in Singapore," reads a synopsis.

"Excited about visiting Asia for the first time but nervous about meeting Nick's family, Rachel is unprepared to learn that Nick has neglected to mention a few key details about his life. It turns out that he is not only the scion of one of the country's wealthiest families but also one of its most sought-after bachelors."

"Being on Nick's arm puts a target on Rachel's back, with jealous socialites and, worse, Nick's own disapproving mother taking aim. And it soon becomes clear that while money can't buy love, it can definitely complicate things."

"Crazy Rich Asians" is the first in a trilogy of books that was released in 2013 and is followed by "China Rich Girlfriend" and "Rich People Problems."
