Stand-up comedian and Good Trouble star Sherry Cola is about to bring her brand of funny to Adele Lim‘s (Raya and the Last Dragon) yet-to-be-titled R-rated comedy about a group of four friends traveling through Asia in search of one of their birth mothers.
According to Variety, Cola will star opposite Ashley Park (Emily in Paris, Girls5eva) marks Lim’s feature directorial debut who will direct a script by Cherry Chevapravatdumrong (Family Guy) and Teresa Hsiao (Awkwafina Is Nora From Queens). I know the movie doesn’t have a title yet, but it should be called Dope Asian Women Doing Dope Things.
The pic will be produced by Lionsgate and Point Grey Pictures. Lim, Chevapravatdumrong and Hsiao will produce alongside Point Grey’s Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg, James Weaver and Josh Fagen. Meredith Wieck and Chisom Ude will oversee the project for Lionsgate.
The movie will follow a group of women as they travel through the region. 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 comedy, which has been greenlit and fast-tracked for production, is expected to shoot this fall.
Cola has used her platform to champion representation and inclusion. She is a advocate for the LGBTQIA, Asian and other historically marginalized communities. In addition to Freeform’s Good Trouble, she can be seen in the forthcoming feature comedy Sick Girl with Nina Dobrev and Wendi McLendon-Covey. She also lent her voice to Paramount Animation’s upcoming feature The Tiger’s Apprentice. Most importantly, she appeared with me in the Snap docuseries As I Am directed by The Donut King helmer Alice Gu.
