Sherry Cola, who stars on the Freeform’s hit series Good Trouble, has joined Tony and Grammy-nominated actor Ashley Park (Girls 4Eva) in the directorial debut of Adele Lim’s upcoming untitled raunchy R-rated comedy for Lionsgate and Point Grey Pictures. Variety confirmed the casting news.
Adele Lim is best known as the writer of Crazy Rich Asians and Disney’s Raya and the Last Dragon.
Cherry Chevapravatdumrong (Awkwafina Is Nora from Queens) and Teresa Hsiao (co-creator of Awkwafina Is Nora from Queens) will be writing the script from a story by Chevapravatdumrong, Hsiao, and Lim.
The adult comedy follows four Asian American women as they journey across Asia in quest of finding one of their biological moms. Their journey becomes one of bonding, friendship, belonging, and no-holds-barred recklessness, revealing the universal truth of what it is to know and love who you are inside.
If not familiar with Point Grey Pictures, they are behind the raunchy comedy films like Neighbors starring Zac Efron and Seth Rogen, Sausage Party starring Seth Rogen, Kristen Wiig, and Jonah Hill, and This is the End starring Seth Rogen, Jonah Hill, and Danny McBride.
Cola will be featured next in the comedy Sick Girl alongside Nina Dobrev and Wendi McLendon-Covey. She is also set to lend her voice to Paramount Animation’s The Tiger’s Apprentice.
