The holiday-set comedy will feature the music of George Michael, including unreleased material.
Paul Feig is setting up a Crazy Rich Asians reunion.
Michelle Yeoh will join Henry Golding in the Feig-directed London-set holiday comedy Last Christmas. Emilia Clarke is also set to star in the Universal feature, which was written by Emma Thompson and Bryony Kimmings.
Last Christmas will feature the music of George Michael, including the holiday classic of the same name, and will also premiere unreleased material.
The pic, which is dated for a Nov. 15, 2019, release, follows Kate (Clarke), an elf in a year-round Christmas shop, who begins dating Tom (Golding), a guy who seems too good to be true when he walks into her life and starts to see through so many of her barriers.
Feig, who worked with Golding on the mystery thriller A Simple Favor, will also produce via his FeigCo banner with Jessie Henderson. David Livingstone, producer on the Renee Zellweger-starring Judy Garland biopic Judy, and Thompson will also produce. Universal executive vp production Erik Baiers will oversee the project for the studio.
Yeoh, whose credits include Memoirs of a Geisha, Reign of Assassins and Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, was last in theaters with John M. Chu's romantic comedy Crazy Rich Asians, which pulled in over $230 million at the global box office.
Yeoh, who is repped by Artist International Group, can currently be seen on CBS All Access' Star Trek: Discovery.
