More casting details have been revealed about the upcoming Disney+ Original basketball-themed movie “Chang Can Dunk”, which is about a young Asian-American 16-year-old teenager, played by Bloom Li, who and a massive basketball fanatic who is constantly marginalised, not-popular high school kid and wannabe basketball player who becomes obsessed with the idea of learning to dunk, all in an effort to best the school’s basketball star, Matt — and hopefully win the adoration of the very pretty Kristy.
According to Deadline, Chase Liefeld has joined the cast and will be playing the role of Matt. He has previously starred in “Honor Student” and the YouTube series “Sunnyside Up”. The actor also took to social media to confirm the news.
This high school basketball film will be directed and written by Jingyi Shao. It will be produced by Rishi Rajani, Brad Weston and Negin Salmasi.
Filming is due to begin next month at the Bunnell High School in Stratford, Connecticut.
No other details have yet been revealed for this new Disney+ Original, such as when it will be released.
This is one of many basketball projects currently in development for Disney+, including “61”, “Greek Freak”, and the second season of “Big Shot”.
