Randall Park‘s directorial debut gets better and better.
News broke today, Aug. 30, that Park has cast Justin H. Min (“The Umbrella Academy”), Sherry Cola (“Good Trouble”) and Ally Maki (“Wrecked”) in the upcoming comedic drama “Shortcomings.” The three will join additionally announced stars Sonoya Mizuno (“House of the Dragon”), Jacob Batalon (“Spider-Man: No Way Home”) and Debby Ryan (“The Suite Life on Deck”). “Shortcomings” will center on Bay Area residents Ben (Min) and his best friend Alice (Cola), who navigate through Ben’s relationship with his girlfriend Miko (Maki), Alice’s love life and other issues along the way.
The film marks actor and comedian Park’s first time in the director’s seat, and is based on Adrian Tomine’s 2007 graphic novel, which Tomine adapted into a screenplay. He will also serve as executive producer. Topic Studios and Tango Entertainment will oversee distribution, while Picture Films, Roadside Attractions and Imminent Collision will produce.
