Ken Jeong has joined the cast of Impossible Dream Entertainment’s comedy Tiger Mom.
Deadline reports that Jeong and Lochlyn Munro (Riverdale) have recently signed on to the film. They will star alongside Zhang Jingchu and Michelle Krusiec.
According to IMDB, the film follows a mother (Zhang) who enrolls her uncontrollable children in a disciplinary school called Tiger Academy that is “capable of whipping them into Ivy League shape.” Jeong will play the children’s work-obsessed father.
Deadline reports that Shawn Chou will direct the film. Chou wrote the script alongside Michelle Krusiec and Neil Garguilo. The producers are Shaun Redick, Yvette Yates Redick, George Lee, Jayce Barreiro, Chou and Stefanie Huang.
“This film has been an incredibly personal journey for me,” said Chou, according to Deadline. “I approached many challenging childhood memories, and how it influenced my parenting now that I’m a father. It is a comedic take on the cultural stereotype of the Tiger Mom, but underneath it’s a universal story about how a disconnected family must find each other again.”
The film is currently in production. Daily Hive News recently reported that Jeong had been spotted on the film’s set. It is unclear when the film will premiere.
