Whoa! Netflix has announced that Keanu Reeves and Daniel Dae Kim will be joining the cast of the upcoming original comedy Always Be My Maybe. The film already boasts some extreme Asian star power with Ali Wong and Randall Park attached to star. Wong and Park also co-wrote it with Michael Golamco. Nahnatchka Khan, who most notably created Don’t Trust the B—- in Apartment 23 and produced ABC’s Fresh Off the Boat (the latter of which Park stars in), is directing.
Cast members previously announced include Michelle Buteau, Vivian Bang, Karan Soni (Deadpool 2), Charlene Yi, James Saito, Lyrics Born, and Susan Park.
Wong and Park star as childhood sweethearts who haven’t spoken in 15 years. Netflix describes the film as:
Childhood sweethearts 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. The old sparks are still there but can they adapt to each other’s world?
Reeves will next be seen in John Wick: Chapter 3 and the romantic comedy Destination Wedding (which co-stars Winona Ryder). Dae Kim stars on CBS’s Hawaii Five-0 and the upcoming Hellboy remake. Park will return to Fresh Off the Boat’s fifth season. Ali Wong recently released a second stand-up special on Netflix, Hard Knock Wife, a follow-up to Baby Cobra, which also premiered on Netflix. She will also voice the lead character of Bertie on upcoming Netflix animated comedy series Tuca & Bertie and serve as executive producer of the series.
Production is already under way in Vancouver. Always Be My Maybe is slated to come out in 2019.
