Stephanie Hsu Reveals ‘Joy Ride’ Initially Had A Queer Storyline

Stephanie Hsu

Stephanie Hsu revealed that there is a queer storyline in her latest movie ‘Joy Ride’, but it was “kind of got edited.”

In an interview with Collider, Hsu revealed that her character and Sabrina Wu’s character had “a whole gay track.”

‘Joy Ride’ is a comedy directed by Adele Lim. It tells the story of Audrey, Lolo, and Deadeye who all travel to China for Audrey so they could close a work deal and meet her biological parents. They then meet Audrey’s old roommate and actress Kat before a hilarious adventure ensues.

‘Joy Ride’ stars Ashley Park (Audrey), Sherry Cola (Lolo), Sabrina Wu (Deadeye), and Stephanie Hsu (Kat).

Hsu describes the film as “insane and chaotic and raunchy,” however, the ‘Joy Ride’ only wraps up in just 95 minutes, which probably explains why the queer storyline had to be shed. Although taken out, Hsu said that the idea could “be saved for the sequel.”

‘Joy Ride’ initially premiered at the SXSW before hitting theaters on July 7.
