Worth The Wait, which is to be the American directorial debut of award-winning Taiwanese filmmaker Tom Shu-Yu Lin, is said to have wrapped production in Vancouver and Kuala Lumpur

Detailed in a report by Deadline, the movie is said to be an English-language indie set against the intercontinental backdrops of Seattle and Kuala Lumpur, all while being in the vein of early 2000s cult classic, Love Actually (2003).

"Worth The Wait follows a year in the interconnected lives and romances of an all-Asian ensemble cast," read the article.

After directing films in Asia for over 15 years, Lin stated that he is thrilled to make his first American debut with such incredible actors and filmmakers, stating that, having grown up in both Taiwan and America, he is excited to showcase who he is as an Asian-American.

"We've always loved ensemble romantic comedies like Love Actually (2003), and are so excited to be able to share our own take on the genre with an all Asian cast and a script inspired by our own love story, our family, and different stages of our lives," said Dan Mark and Rachel Tan of King Street Pictures, who are the producers of the film.
