Ashley Liao & Ross Butler's 'Loveboat, Taipei' Movie Adaptation to Premiere on Paramount+ in Summer 2023!

Ashley Liao and Ross Butler‘s upcoming movie is headed to Paramount+!

It was just announced that the streaming service has picked up Love In Taipei, based on the book “Loveboat, Taipei” by Abigail Hing Wen.

Ashley stars in the film as Ever Wong, “whose summer takes an unexpected turn when her parents surprise her with a trip to Taipei for a cultural immersion program.” This is actually inspired by a real program that is attended by thousands of Chinese and Taiwanese diaspora youth.

Get more details inside…

Here’s a synopsis: Ever is surprised to discover that she hasn’t signed up for homework and history lessons, but instead for a summer-long free-for-all the locals and other students call “Loveboat.” It quickly lives up to its name when Ever finds herself trying not to fall for two attractive but wildly different boys who are vying for her attention, while at the same time finding the courage to defy her parents’ high expectations and pursue her true passion: dancing. 

Ross will star as Rick Woo, an infamous sports and scholastic prodigy; Nico Hiraga as Xavier Yeh, a free-spirited artist and heir to an international tech empire; Chelsea Zhang as Ever’s friend Sophie, whom she meets at Loveboat; and Cindy Cheung as Ever’s Aunt Shu.

Arvin Chen serves as director, with Matt Kaplan producing for ACE Entertainment, who produced RossTo All the Boys I’ve Loved Before movies. Ross is also an executive producer on Love In Taipei, along with author Abigail Hing Wen, Christopher Foss, Matthew Janzen, Max Siemers, Aubrey Bendix, Cheng-Chung Chang.

The upcoming movie will premiere later this summer on Paramount+. Stay tuned to JJJ for a release date, photos and trailer…
