Crazy Rich Asians (2018) breakout star Henry Golding has landed his next Hollywood gig - to co-star with Game Of Thrones actress Emilia Clarke in a romantic comedy co-written by Emma Thompson.
Titled Last Christmas, the film is set to be directed by Paul Feig, who directed Golding in the thriller A Simple Favor, which opened earlier this month.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the upcoming movie will be a holiday romance set in London.
In an interview with Radio Times, English playwright Bryony Kimmings, who is co-scripting the screenplay with Thompson, said the film is named after the classic Christmas song of the same name by English musical duo, Wham!.
Golding, 31, is a Malaysia-born British actor whose mother is of Iban ancestry.
The former TV presenter is riding on the huge box-office success of Crazy Rich Asians, which has made more than US$140 million (S$191.8 million) in the United States and more than $6.5 million here, and has become one of the hottest leading men of the moment.
