CelebNMovies247.com has learned that Constance Wu, 37, is on board to lead Universal’s adaptation of Rachel Khong’s 2017 debut novel.
Wu is best known for her roles as Jessica Huang in the ABC television comedy ‘Fresh Off the Boat‘ and Rachel Chu in 2018 rom-com ‘Crazy Rich Asians.’
Constance Wu will also executive produce the project while Dylan Clark will produce for his Universal-based Dylan Clark Productions and Jennifer Yee McDevitt will pen the screenplay.
According to the synopsis of the book:
“Goodbye, Vitamin” is a wry, beautifully observed story of a woman at a crossroads, as Ruth and her friends, attempt to shore up her father’s career; she and her mother obsess over the ambiguous health benefits – in the absence of a cure – of dried jellyfish supplements and vitamin pills; and they all try to forge a new relationship with the brilliant, childlike, irascible man her father has become.
Wu will portray Ruth Young, who returns home when her father loses his job as a university lecturer after he’s diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. To help her father cope with his illness, she enlists the help of one of her father’s former student to stage a fake class so he can continue to teach.
‘Goodbye, Vitamin’ was the winner of the California Book Award for First Fiction as well as landing a spot as an LA Times Book Prize Finalist, and it was also named as Best Book of the Year by a host of publications.
