Constance Wu’s filmography mostly consists of roles in lighthearted comedies, but she’s getting ready to change gears with her next project. The Golden Globe-nominated actress is set to star in the conspiracy-thriller series The Terminal List alongside Chris Pratt.
Based on Jack Carr’s bestselling novel, this intriguing project centers on a Navy SEAL operative, James Reece (Pratt), as he tries to undercover the truth behind the deaths of his team after being ambushed during a high-stakes covert mission.
Wu is set to join him in the role of Katie Buranek, described as a risk-seeking war correspondent, who uses her byline to speak truth to power after leaving a job at a prestigious news outlet to pursue high-impact stories on her own terms.
This project is somewhat out of the box for Wu, who’s best known for the roles in the sitcom Fresh Off the Boat and her critically acclaimed performances in Crazy Rich Asians and Hustlers. She’s currently also attached to star in Low Budget Ethnic Movie and sci-fi series Solo.
