Jiang Wen cast in Star Wars Anthology: Rogue One?

Our buds at Jedi News found this story from Yahoo Singapore saying Jian Wen has joined Star Wars Anthology: Rogue One:

Following Donnie Yen, it was reported that mainland actor Jiang Wen has also been cast in an upcoming “Star Wars” film.

According to CRI News, Jiang reportedly will star in the upcoming spinoff, “Star Wars Anthology: Rogue One”.

The news came a month after it was previously rumoured that “Rogue One” had been pursuing Chinese talent.

Sounds cool if the report is accurate. I am not familiar with his films but I always like to use Star Wars casting rumors as an excuse to watch films I haven’t encountered before.
