Chow down for ‘Pirates’

Disney and producer Jerry Bruckheimer have enlisted Chow Yun-fat for “Pirates of the Caribbean 3.” Chow will play Capt. Sao Feng, a notorious pirate who plays a major role in the second sequel to 2003’s Disney blockbuster. It is the Hong Kong native’s first English-language role since “Bulletproof Monk” in 2003. “Pirates” 2 and 3 are shooting back-to-back, with production scheduled through January. The shoot is currently in a scheduled hiatus so director Gore Verbinski can ready portions of “Pirates 2,” formally monikered “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest,” for post-production, with an eye toward a July 2006 release. “Pirates 3” is scheduled for summer 2007. Shooting stopped June 10 and will resume in mid-August in Los Angeles, shifting back to Caribbean locations later in the year. Some “Pirates 2” footage remains to be shot, but most of the remaining shooting days will be devoted to “Pirates 3.”
