Just days after reports dropped that Crazy Rich Asians actress Michelle Yeoh was in talks for a mysterious role in Marvel Studios’ Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, another rising star has joined the cast.
According to The Illuminerdi, Rosalind Chao has joined the growing cast. As of now, details regarding her role are unknown, but according to the site, this will be a key role in the film.
Chao is quickly becoming a favorite at the Walt Disney Company as she is set to appear in the Disney+ original movie Magic Camp (which is yet to have a release date), and will appear in the highly anticipated live-action adaptation of Mulan, which hits theaters in March.
Directed by Destin Daniel Cretton (Just Mercy), the film is set to star newcomer Simu Liu as the titular hero, popular Chinese actor Tony Leung (Infernal Affairs), and Awkwafina (Jumanji: The Next Level, Crazy Rich Asians) in an unknown role.
Shang-Chi and the Legend of Ten Rings will be in theaters on February 12, 2021.
