Joy Ride, a new raunchy comedy film starring Tony nominee Ashley Park and Oscar nominee Stephanie Hsu, has revealed a 1st look at the star players. Take a look above! The film is set to hit movie theatres June 23.
Directed by Adele Lim, the comedy follows four unlikely friends who find themselves on a once-in-a-lifetime international adventure when Audrey's (Park) Asian business trip falls apart. When her childhood best friend Lolo (Sherry Cola), college friend turned Chinese soap star Kat (Hsu) and Lolo's eccentric cousin Deadeye (Sabrina Wu) join her on the road, things quickly go off the rails in an explicit exploration of identity, self discovery, and the bonding power of friendship.
Joy Ride features a screenplay by Crazy Rich Asians co-writers Cherry Chevapravatdumrong and Teresa Hsiao, and is produced by Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg, James Weaver, and Josh Fagen. The original concept was conceived by Lim, Hsiao, and Chevapravatdumrong.
In addition to Park, Cola, Hsu, and Wu, the film will star Ronny Chieng (Crazy Rich Asians), Desmond Chiam (The Falcon and the Winter Soldier), Alexander Hodge (Insecure), and Chris Pang (Crazy Rich Asians).
