Just think of Oh in her role as sharp-tongued and sarcastic Eve Polastri in Killing Eve. And Awkwafina was perfect as Peik Lin, the straight-talking best friend of Constance Wu’s Rachel, in Crazy Rich Asians.
So we’re so excited to hear that the two actors are working together on a new Netflix comedy film.
Deadline has confirmed that Oh and Awkwafina are teaming up to play sisters in a yet-to-be-titled movie. The script is by the screenwriter behind the forthcoming Hocus Pocus sequel for Disney+, Jen D’Angelo. And Jessica Elbaum will be producing the project alongside Will Ferrell, Awkwafina and Oh.
While we don’t have a name for the film yet, we do have some details on the story…
The film centres on a lonely recluse whose life is upended when her train wreck of a sister vows to mend their relationship by helping her fulfill her lifelong dream: to be a contestant on her favorite game show.
With Oh and Awkwafina playing the sisters, we know it’s going to be a lot of fun also told with plenty of heart.
Oh has shared her excitement for the new production, sharing the news on Twitter and writing: “Yep, it’s in the works”. Fans have of course reacted by saying they can’t wait to see the finished result.
While it might be a while until we actually see this one on our screens, we know it’s going to be worth the wait.
