Oscar Nominee Stephanie Hsu Takes a ‘Joy Ride’

Queer actress Stephanie Hsu, who was already familiar to us from her hilarious presence on “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” and who has become beloved for her Academy Award-nominated role in “Everything Everywhere All At Once,” will hit screens again in June in the comedy “Joy Ride.”

The directorial debut of Adele Lim, the screenwriter of “Crazy Rich Asians” and “Raya and the Last Dragon,” it comes with a script from Teresa Hsiao and Cherry Chevapravatdumrong (both known for their work on “Family Guy,” with Hsiao also the creator of “Awkwafina Is Nora from Queens”). Hsu and an ensemble that includes Sabrina Wu (“Dying for Sex”), Sherry Cola (“Good Trouble”) and Ashley Park (“Emily in Paris”) take an international trip through Asia to search for one of their birth mothers, with raucous results. We don’t know which Marvel or DC movie opens in June, if any, but this sounds exactly like the superhero content we really want.
