Chinese action star and director Jiang Wen is reportedly being sought out for a role in Star Wars Anthology: Rogue One. This rumor comes hot off of the trail of the rumor that Donnie Yen will be in Episode VIII.
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.
Wen has starred and directed in a number of action films, including Let The Bullets Fly. As mentioned above, there was an earlier report that Donnie Yen would be involved in Episode VIII, which also stated that filming for Rogue One would begin this month. Given that set leaks from Rogue One just popped up a few days ago, it looks like at least one part of that report is true.
