Netflix’s Always Be My Maybe begins production
Modern comedy favorites Ali Wong and Randall Park’s upcoming romantic comedy, Always Be My Maybe, has officially begun production this week in Vancouver, Canada.
Written by and starring the American Housewife and Fresh Off the Boat stars, the film follows two childhood sweethearts who have a falling out and don’t speak to each other for 15 years. But the two reconnect when Sasha (Wong), a chef opening a new restaurant in San Francisco, bumps into Marcus (Park), a happily struggling musician that still lives at home and works for his dad, and the sparks fly once again, but the two must figure out if they can fit in each other’s new worlds.
In addition to Wong and Park, the film stars Keanu Reeves (John Wick: Chapter 2), Michelle Buteau (2 Dope Queens), Vivian Bang (Sullivan & Son), Karan Soni (Deadpool 2), Charlyne Yi (We Bare Bears), Daniel Dae Kim (Hawaii Five-0), James Saito (Big Eyes) and Susan Park (Vice Principals).
Wong is coming off of the acclaimed comedy special released through Netflix on Mother’s Day, Hard Knock Wife, and Park is set to star in Ant-Man and the Wasp and Aquaman later this year. Always Be My Maybe is set by Netflix to release sometime next year.
