Canadian and American actor Sandra Oh, who is known for her roles in Killing Eve and Arliss has been roped in for Aziz Ansari's directorial film, Good Fortune, reported Deadline. The film also stars Seth Rogen, Keanu Reeves, and Keke Palmer.

Oh's role is being kept under wraps, as is the plot of the movie. Ansari is set to direct from his script and will produce alongside Anthony Katagas and Alan Yang, with Aniz Adam Ansari and Jonathan McCoy serving as executive producers. Brady Fujikawa and Jon Humphrey of Lionsgate are in charge of the picture.

The film is Ansari's second directorial project, following the Searchlight dramedy Being Mortal, which was shut down in 2022 because of allegations of bad behaviour by cast member Bill Murray. He previously directed his 2022 comedy special Nightclub Comedian for Netflix, as well as 11 episodes of the critically acclaimed Netflix series Master of None', which he co-created with Yang.

Up next, she'll be seen in the series The Sympathizer starring recent Oscar winner Robert Downey Jr., which premieres April 14, reported Deadline.
