According to Yahoo! Singapore, Chinese actor Jiang Wen has signed on for a unspecified role in Star Wars Anthology: Rogue One. Jiang hasn’t made a big splash stateside at the moment, but is best known for Let The Bullets Fly and Gone With The Bullets. Godzilla director Gareth Edwards is helping the film and has been reported to be looking to cast Chinese actors in this film.
The first plot details we got for this movie outlined a Rebel plan to steal the plans for the first Death Star, but nothing else has been released.
Joining Wen is Felicity Jones, Riz Ahmed, Diego Luna, Ben Mendelsohn, and Forest Whitaker. Star Wars Anthology: Rogue One will hit theatres on December 16, 2016.
