‘Star Wars 8’ Wants Hong Kong Action Star Donnie Yen?

Late last week, it was heavily rumored that Star Wars Anthology: Rogue One has already begun production at London's Pinewood Studios, with star Felicity Jones having shot one major scene. And we're expected to hear some big announcements at this year's Comic Con, where Star Wars: The Force Awakens will have a big presence this Friday. But today, we have an unconfirmed rumor that Star Wars: Episode VIII, which is in pre-production with director Rian Johnson, is already starting to cast new actors. And apparently the production wants Hong Kong action legend Donnie Yen, known best in the states for his Ip Man franchise, for an important yet undisclosed role.

The news comes from Apple Daily, a Hong Kong tabloid not exactly known for its blockbuster movie scoops. They claim that Donnie Yen has already signed on, insuring that Star Wars: Episode VIII has international box office appeal. SPOILER ALERT! They also claim that he is playing a Jedi. And that he will shoot scenes with Harrison Ford's Han Solo as early as next month. This has raised some eyebrows, not only in terms of previous rumors. It is believed that Star Wars: The Force Awakens sets up the Jedi as all but extinct. And it has also been widely reported that Han Solo loses his head at the hands of Kylo Ren leading into Star Wars: The Force Awakens' big third act conflict.
