Iconic music by Amy Tan an exploration of identity, friendship and womanhood get a sequel. Teaming up with Oscar-winning screenwriter Ron Bass, the bestselling author is producing the sequel to the 1993 film The Joy Luck Club, inspired by her 1989 novel of the same name. Like the original film, the new film, which will also be produced by Ashok Amritraj’s Hyde Park Entertainment Group and produced by Jeff Kliman, will tell the story of Chinese and Chinese American mothers and daughters as their lives become intertwined. Expanding on the source material, the sequel will also see daughters become mothers and mothers become grandmothers, adding a new generation of women to the saga.

“Now more than ever, it’s important to share authentic stories about the Asian American experience.”

“I am thrilled to be working with Amy, Ron and Jeff to bring this special film to the screen,” said Amritraj Deadline. “Now more than ever, it’s important to share authentic stories about the Asian American experience, and we believe this film will appeal to a wide audience with its storytelling grounded in humanity and connection.”

The film’s 1993 release was a groundbreaking moment in cinema, marking the first time a Hollywood film had an all-Asian and Asian-American cast, as well as an all-female cast. “The Joy Luck Club” has since become an emblem for Asian and Asian American representation in film and paved the way for films like 2018’s Crazy Rich Asians — and its potential sequel — 2019.”Farewell,” and 2021″Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings.”
