Deauville to honor Chow

Thesp to be feted as fest screens 'Dragon'

PARIS — Asian superstar Chow Yun Fat will be the subject of a special tribute at the Deauville Festival of American Cinema.

Chow will be honored Sept. 8 in conjunction with the fest’s screening of Ang Lee’s historical adventure “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon,” in which he stars as a martial arts master.

The prolific actor, who appeared in 12 features in 1986 alone, enjoyed a series of hits in his native Hong Kong with director John Woo. Chow’s first American film was “The Replacement Killers.” Most recently, he starred opposite Jodie Foster in “Anna and the King.”

Deauville is also mounting in-person tributes this year to Clint Eastwood, Dino de Laurentiis, Samuel L. Jackson and Susan Sarandon. Fest’s 26th edition runs Sept. 1-10 in the Normandy resort town.
