Yun-Fat Confirmed for ‘Pirates 3’

ON

I really can’t wait for the Pirates of the Caribbean sequels and the more I learn the more I get giddy and now Variety is confirming that Chow Yun-Fat is officially on the projects, that is Pirates 2 and 3.

Yun-Fat will be playing Capt. Sao Feng, a notorious pirate who plays a major role in the second sequel to 2003’s Disney blockbuster.

The two films are going at it Matrix style by shooting back-to-back with production scheduled through January 2006.

Pirates of the Caribbean 2 is currently slated for a July 7, 2006 release and the Variety article seems to be insinuating that the subtitle “Dead Man’s Chest” has been dropped and Disney is shopping for a new one. Pirates 3 will follow the release of the second film during the summer of 2007.
