After bringing in $35.5 million in its five-day opening, Warner Brothers announced today that a Crazy Rich Asians sequel is in the works. However, there might be a little bit of a wait.

Director Jon M. Chu will be coming back on board along with his team of producers to bring the sequel novel, China Rich Girlfriend, to the big screen. Written by Kevin Kwan, Crazy Rich Girlfriend is the second novel in his best selling and highly buzzed about book series, Crazy Rich Asians.

 “I will do whatever they ask me to do,” Chu told The Hollywood Reporter, “This is so important to me. I will push things aside.”

The sequel follows lead characters Nick and Rachel, played by Henry Golding and Constance Chu, as they search for her father throughout China. There have been discussions on bringing back Adele Lim and Peter Chiarelli, who wrote the screenplay for the first movie.

Additionally, Chu is assigned to shoot the film adaptation of the Broadway musical In the Heights. Filming is likely to commence once Chu raps up that project.
