The filming will begin in Vancouver in May and will follow the story of a couple who decide to get married for their own benefits but things turn upside down when the woman’s grandmother pays a surprise visit.

“It warms my heart to see how my film from so many years ago has inspired a new generation to reimagine a new and different version,” Lee said in a statement Thursday. “I look forward to seeing what Andrew Ahn and his wonderful cast create.”

Schamus is producing with partner Joe Pirro under their Symbolic Exchange banner alongside Anita Gou and Caroline Clark for Kindred Spirit. Jordan Hart is set to co-produce. Bleecker Street and ShivHans Pictures have co-acquired the North American rights with plans to release the film theatrically in 2025. Andrew Karpen, Shivani Rawat, Kent Sanderson, Julie Goldstein, Sam Intili and Daniel Bekerman will executive produce. Jenny Jue is serving as the casting director.

“I’m delighted to re-team with my longtime friend and colleague, James Schamus, on this inspired reimagining of a classic rom-com for the modern era,” said Karpen, founder and CEO of Bleecker Street. “Andrew Ahn is a force to be reckoned with and I’m very excited to see the new heights that he and James will take this story to.”
