Golding was a banner client of Paradigm’s Nick LoPiccolo. He broke out as the charming romantic lead in the 2018 smash Warner Bros. rom-com “Crazy Rich Asians,” which grossed more than $230 million worldwide on a reported $30 million budget.
Golding’s profile rose so quickly that a month following “Crazy Rich,” Lionsgate inserted him into the marketing materials for his follow-up film “A Simple Favor,” a noirish thriller co-starring Blake Lively and Anna Kendrick. His credits also include Guy Ritchie’s “The Gentlemen” and Paul Feig’s “Last Christmas.”
He will next lead the action franchise “Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins,” and lend his voice to the animation “Tiger’s Apprentice,” both for Paramount Pictures. Plus the sequel for “Crazy Rich Asians” which allegedly wanted to film both following books, “China Rich Girlfriend” and “Rich People Problems,” from Kevin Kwan’s book trilogy back-to-back. However that production, like many right now in Hollywood has seemingly been put on pause. Hopefully the full cast will return, despite Golding being mum on any details at the “Last Christmas” premiere.
Golding set up the production label Long House last summer, with funding from China’s Starlight Culture Entertainment Group. Under the banner he is reportedly set to produce the assassin pic “Hoof Harrington’s Greatest Hits” with David Leitch (“Atomic Blonde”) and the original conceit “The Inheritance.”
