Crazy Rich Asians director: Win or lose, I'm supposed to do this movie

Director Jon M. Chu talks about why “Crazy Rich Asians” is so personal for him and the actors. And why he wants people to look back 10 years from now and not even remember that Crazy Rich Asians was a thing. It’s the first major Hollywood studio film with an all-Asian cast in 25 years -- based on Kevin Kwan’s international best-selling novel.
