Lana Condor's next rom-com Worth the Wait with star-studded cast

Lana Condor's next movie is a romantic comedy titled Worth the Wait.

Lana Condor, best known for her role as Lara Jean Covey in the To All the Boys franchise, is set to star in a new romantic comedy called Worth the Wait. Directed by Tom Shu-Yu Li, the film has been described as a modern take on Love Actually with a star-studded Asian American cast. The movie was recently acquired by The Exchange, generating excitement among fans and industry insiders.

Worth the Wait takes inspiration from Love Actually, a beloved 2003 rom-com that tells the stories of various characters and their intertwining relationships. Similarly, Worth the Wait will follow multiple Asian American strangers as they navigate love, repair broken connections, and forge new ones throughout the course of a year. The film promises to tug at the heartstrings and deliver the feel-good romantic moments that audiences crave.

Set in both Seattle and Kuala Lumpur, the capital of Malaysia, Worth the Wait will provide a delightful blend of cultural backdrops. The film will showcase these vibrant cities, allowing viewers to immerse themselves in different settings and experiences.

The cast of Worth the Wait is nothing short of impressive. Alongside Lana Condor, the film features talented stars like Andrew Koji, Sung Kang, Elodie Yung, and Ross Butler. With their combined prowess, this star-studded Asian American ensemble is poised to captivate audiences and bring the story to life in a remarkable way. Their diverse backgrounds and accomplished careers promise to add depth and authenticity to the film.

Drawing comparisons to the groundbreaking success of Crazy Rich Asians, Worth the Wait is expected to make its mark as a significant entry in the world of Asian-American romantic comedies. Like its predecessor, the film will celebrate representation and diversity while delivering an engaging and heartfelt story that resonates with viewers. With the combination of a talented cast, an intriguing premise, and skilled direction, Worth the Wait has all the ingredients to become a memorable and beloved rom-com.

Although the film is currently in post-production, fans can anticipate its release date announcement. As the anticipation builds, the buzz surrounding Worth the Wait continues to grow, and audiences eagerly await their next dose of feel-good romance. Stay tuned for updates on this promising project.
