Last year, Randall Park and Ali Wong signed on to star together in a romantic comedy at Netflix, and now the project has a director. According to Variety, Fresh Off the Boat’s Nahnatchka Khan will make her feature directorial debut with the film, which Park and Wong (who star in and write for Khan’s ABC comedy, respectively) wrote with Michael Golamco. The movie centers on “childhood sweethearts who have a falling-out and don’t speak for 15 years. They reconnect as adults when Sasha, now a celebrity chef opening a restaurant in San Francisco, runs into Marcus, a happily struggling musician still living at home working for his dad — and discover the old sparks are still there.” A premiere date for the movie has not been announced.
