The Force is with Donnie Yen?

Well this is some rather awesome news to start off the week with; according to Apple Daily Donnie Yen has signed on to join the Star Wars universe.

The martial arts legend will apparently be joining the new standalone film entitled Rogue One and other actors who were reportedly wanted for the role included Jet Li, Stephen Chow, Tony Leung Chiu Wai, Daniel Wu, Wang Leehom and Chang Chen.

Apparently Yen will be playing a Jedi, but personally I doubt that’s true as there aren’t meant to be any Jedi in Rogue One; originally the report said Episode VIII but according to several other sites it is in fact Rogue One.

Rogue One’s story is about a band of resistance fighters who unite for a daring mission to steal the Death Star plans and it’s to be directed by Gareth Edwards who directed last years Godzilla.
