Randall Park to Make Directorial Debut With Graphic Novel Adaptation 'Shortcomings'

Roadside Attractions will produce the feature with Park's Imminent Collision banner.

Randall Park is set to make his directorial debut with a feature film adaptation of the Bay Area-set graphic novel Shortcomings.

Adrian Tomine is behind story that follows a trio of young urbanites — Ben Tanaka, Miko Hayashi and Alice Kim — as they navigate a range of interpersonal relationships, traversing the country in search of the ideal connection. Tomine will pen the screenplay.

Roadside Attractions will produce the feature, with Park's Imminent Collision banner. Roadside co-presidents Howard Cohen and Eric d’Arbeloff will produce with Jennifer Berman and Ryan Paine.

Hieu Ho, Michael Golamco and Park will produce for Imminent Collision, which develops and produces film and television centering on Asian Americans with a first-look television pact at 20th Century.

Behind the camera, Park previously directed the series finale of hit ABC series Fresh Off the Boat and penned the screenplay for Netflix rom-com Always Be My Maybe with co-star Ali Wong and Golamco. He was most recently seen onscreen in Marvel series WandaVision on Disney+.

Park is repped by UTA, Artists First and Myman Greenspan. Tomine is represented by UTA.
