Disney has found a lead for their upcoming basketball film, Chang Can Dunk. Bloom Li will stars in the new film, according to Deadline.

  • Chang Can Dunk will follow a 16-year old, constantly marginalized, not-popular high school kid and wannabe basketball player 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.
  • The new film will be written and directed by Jingyi Shao.
  • Lena Waithe and Rishi Rajani will serve as producers through their Hillman Grad Productions.
  • Brad Weston and Negin Salmasi will also produce the movie.
  • Chang Can Dunk is intended for Disney+.
  • Li’s credits include a recurring role on Hulu’s Into the Dark, Awesomeness TV’s My Dead Ex and appearances on CBS’ S.W.A.T.
