Golden Globe winner Awkwafina, winner of a Golden Globe for her role in The Farewell, has joined the cast of Swan Song, an upcoming Apple Original film starring Academy Award-winner Mahershala Ali and Academy Award, Golden Globe and SAG nominee Naomie Harris, reports Deadline.
The film will be produced for the Apple TV+ streaming service by Anonymous Content, and will go into production this spring. Swan Song is described as a genre-bending drama that will be directed by Academy Award winner Benjamin Cleary (“Stutterer”), who also wrote the project. Set in the near future, the film explores how far someone will go, and how much they’ll sacrifice, to make a happier life for the people they love.
