Is Andy Lau Joining The Cast Of IRON MAN 3?
According to Twitch, Chinese superstar Any Lau (Infernal Affairs, House Of The Flying Daggers) may be joining the growing cast of Shane Black's Iron Man 3. The site report that a very reliable source within Disney informs them that the movie's Chinese backers are keen to have a big Chinese name attached to the movie, and Any Lau is the man they want.
Apparently the Infernal Affairs actor is in negotiations to join the already very impressive cast of the Marvel threequel. Would he play The Mandarin? Click to find out..
But before you jump to Manadrin shaped conclusions, it seems that should Lau accept the role he will not be playing the comic book villain widely believed to be Tony Stark's nemesis this time around. According to Twitch..
Word is that Lau (or whoever finally lands the role) would play a good guy - a Chinese scientist who comes to the aid of his old buddy Tony Stark (Robert Downey, Jr.) by providing him with some new tech that will help him battle Ben Kingsley's villain, but more importantly Aldrich Killian (Guy Pearce) and his Extremis biotechnology.
Lau is one of Hong Kong's most commercially successful actors, and a great talent so I hope he does sign up for this. Last night it was reported that Jessica Chastain might be joining the cast, and both Ben Kingsley and Guy Pearce are also said to be on board. Not bad eh? More news on this as we have it.
