Could Actress And Martial Artist Sarah Chang Be Disney’s Next MULAN?
|Golden Horde Productions|
With Sony Pictures and director Alex Graves priming their take on Disney’s animated 1998 adventure, Mulan, Disney themselves is also journeying to complete their own reprisal of the film with Avatar co-scribes Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver piecing together the latest scriptwork. As you might also expect, casting and auditions are already underway for the film’s slated 2018 release with a few important rounds already finished through the process as the powers that be find their star of choice.
Take, for example, Virginia native Sarah Chang, five-time USA National Wushu Team member now based in Beijing, China. Growing up influenced in martial arts from childhood and having trained with the likes of those familiar with action star Jet Li, Chang’s career took a prospective turn in Taiwan. Thus, with a career brewing in Asia in recent years, some of her documented work in film and training can best be viewed in a stellar work reel published in October of last year, and it’s one that certainly helps Chang make her case for film and television stardom.
