In an ideal world, the most active member of the Crazy Rich Asians group chat would be us, of course. (We’d send “good night” and “good morning” messages every day, ask Henry Golding to marry us, and demand Constance Wu’s unfiltered thoughts on absolutely everything.) In reality, according to star Awkwafina, the most active members of the Crazy Rich Asians group text are the grandes dames. “The aunts, for sure!” she told Vulture at BAMCinemaFest’s New York City premiere of her new movie, The Farewell. “They’re up at all hours. The group chat goes off between 2 and 6 a.m. It’s on fire because they’re all up in Singapore.” Last August, THR reported that Warner Bros. was developing a Crazy Rich Asians sequel, with Jon M. Chu returning to direct — maybe there’s still time for our number to be added.
