Writer-director Benjamin Cleary is behind the movie.

Awkwafina will join Mahersala Ali and Naomie Harris in Apple drama Swan Song.

Plot details are scarce but, according to the studio, the movie is "a genre-bending drama set in the near future that explores how far someone will go, and how much they’ll sacrifice, to make a happier life for the people they love."

In the movie, Awkwafina will play Kate, the close friend and confidant to Cameron, played by Ali.

The project, which was written and will be directed by Benjamin Cleary, is produced by Adam Shulman and Jacob Perlin via Anonymous Content, Jonathan King for Concordia Studio, and Ali through his company Know Wonder.

Awkwafina, who picked up a Golden Globe for her role in Lulu Wang's The Farewell, is next set to star in Marvel movie Shang-Chi and voice a role in Disney's Raya and the Last Dragon. She is represented by UTA, Artists First and Schreck Rose.
