Chow Down for "Pirates" Part 3

by |

Admired actor / action star Chow Yun Fat ("Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon") has signed on for villain duty in Disney's as-yet-untitled second sequel to "Pirates of the Caribbean." He'll play Captain Sao Feng, although details on this character are, of course, being kept under wraps.

Director Gore Verbinski is hard at work doing back-to-back duty on the pair of "Pirates" sequels, and the shooting schedule for Part 2 is nearly at an end.

Variety also reports that "Pirates 2" is no longer using the subtitle of "Dead Man's Chest."

"Pirates 2" is presently scheduled for release in July of 2006, with Part 3 docking in port during the summer of '07.
