Awkwafina to star in The Last Adventure of Constance Verity
According to The Wrap, Awkwafina has signed up to star in Legendary s fantasy adventure adaptation of The Last Adventure of Constance Verity, based on the book by A. Lee Martinez.
Per the report, the actress, who is on something of a red-hot streak at the moment, will play ass-kicking detective Constance Verity, who is destined to save the world. In Martinez s novel, Constance has grown tired of her lot in life that of Earth s savior, a role she has played since the age of seven and longs for a normal life.
Legendary purchased the spec script written by John Raffo (Dragon: The Bruce Lee Story). Jon Silk will oversee the project with Jay Ashenfelter for Legendary.
Awkwafina has starred in a number of high-profile films including the blockbuster Crazy Rich Asians. She recently boarded the live-action remake of The Little Mermaid, and will also appear in Jumanji: The Next Level.
