SHANG-CHI & THE LEGEND OF THE TEN RINGS Reportedly Adds Comedian Ronny Chieng

Now that production on Marvel's Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings has been postponed, we have word on a late casting addition to the movie: Actor and comedian Ronny Chieng (Crazy Rich Asians)...

Like pretty much every other big and small screen project currently in production, cameras recently stopped rolling on Marvel's Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings. It'll probably be another while before filming gets underway again, but we do have an update in the form of a late addition to the cast.

According to Discussing Film - who have been spot on with their casting scoops of late - actor/comedian Ronny Chieng (Crazy Rich Asians, The Daily Show) signed on for an undisclosed role before shooting was postponed. It's not known whether he got to film any of his scenes beforehand.

Shang-Chi was one of the first big tentpole releases to halt production early last month when concerns arose that director Destin Daniel Cretton may have contracted coronavirus. He tested negative soon after, but by then most of Hollywood was essentially on lock-down anyway.

Shang-Chi stars Simu Liu as the titular Master of Kung Fu, and Tony Chiu-Wai Leung as The Mandarin. Awkwafina and Michelle Yeoh have also been confirmed, and there are rumors that Creed II actor Florian Munteanu will have a minor villainous role.

The film will now hit theaters on May 7, 2021 after being delayed from its original February 2021 release date.
