According to a new report this week, Awkwafina and Ike Barinholtz are set to star in a comedy film named ‘Crime After Crime,’ and the plot sounds promising.
Awkwafina will play a millennial podcast host, who is obsessed with covering true crimes. Things take an unusual turn for her when the convict she talks about on her podcast shows up at her house after escaping prison, hoping she’ll prove his innocence.
Dan Gurewitch and David Young are writing the screenplay, with Nick Stoller and Conor Welch producing under their Stoller Global Solutions banner alongside Awkwafina, Barinholtz and David Stassen.
2018 was a good year for both Ike and Awkwafina. Ike starred in the surprisingly great comedy, ‘Blockers’ last year and made his feature directorial debut with The Oath. Meanwhile, Awkwafina starred in Ocean’s 8 and Crazy Rich Asians.
Here’s to hoping this film is another hit for them both. I’m definitely intrigued!
