Rumors of Kris Aquino landing a role in the movie adaptation of Kevin Kwan's hilarious bestselling novel Crazy Rich Asians are intensifying! If confirmed, she would be the very first Filipino to be cast in the film—we expect nothing less from the Queen of All Media.
With no official statement from Kris nor the production team, we're free to let our minds wander and our imaginations roam. The only clue we've got is that Kris could be portraying, according to Inquirer.net, a wealthy princess of either Bruneian or Malaysian descent.
What do you reckon? Could she fill the shoes of...
GOH PEIK LIN
Peik Lin is Rachel's talkative, generous old friend from Stanford, hailing from an extravagantly rich Singaporean family that owns a property development and construction company. Sounds perfect for Kris, if we say so ourselves!
Aptly nicknamed "Radio One Asia", Cassandra is Nick's nosy second cousin who posesses an unmatched snout for sniffing out all the continent's juiciest gossip. With her talent for hosting talk shows, Kris sounds like Cassandra to us.
THE SULTANA OF BORNEO
First spotted by the notorious social climber Kitty Pong at an upscale fete, the Sultana of Borneo is introduced as a Malay princess "covered head to toe in diamonds." All the keywords, check. We've got more than enough reason to guess that Kris will be royalty very, very soon...
Nick's vain and snobbish ex-girlfriend is a wealthy socialite—up until her titled grandfather wakes up from his years-long coma, rages at his family's careless lavishness, and cuts them off from their money flow. A poor little rich girl? Kris would be a hilarious fit.
Those are our bets (fingers crossed that we may actually be correct somewhere)! What are yours, Preview girls?
