Adele Lim to Direct Ashley Park in R-rated Comedy

Follows four Asian American women on a journey of "no-holds-barred wild debauchery."

Adele Lim, co-writer of Crazy Rich Asians and Raya and the Last Dragon, will make her directorial debut helming an untitled R-rated comedy for Lionsgate and Point Grey Pictures.

Starring Tony and Grammy-nominated actress Ashley Park, the project follows four Asian American women as they travel through Asia in search of one of their birth mothers. Along the way, their experience becomes one of bonding, friendship, belonging, and no-holds-barred wild debauchery that reveals the universal truth of what it means to know and love who you are. The film will be written by Cherry Chevapravatdumrong and Teresa Hsiao, from a story by Chevapravatdumrong, Hsiao and Lim.

"This journey began with me, Cherry and Teresa -- my friends and comedy writing heroes -- wanting to tell a story with characters who look like us, about women who are messy and thirsty, but have so much heart," Lim said. "Point Grey and Lionsgate have been incredible allies and partners from day one, and I am thrilled to be making my directing debut with them on a story that’s so special to me."
