YUN-FAT IN POTC SEQUELS?

Hong Kong's Chow Yun-fat is set to star in the upcoming sequels of Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, says Chinese-language newspaper Apple Daily. Chow's wife, Jasmin Chan Wui-nin, said the actor will play the famous 15th century Chinese pirate Cheung Po Tsai for the second and third installments of the film. Johnny Depp, Orlando Bloom, and Keira Knightley are expected to return in their roles.

Chan said both the movie's producer and director contacted Chow's management company in the U.S. two months ago and director Gore Verbinski flew to Hong Kong last week to discuss the screenplay with Chow. 'The director was very sincere about it and specially flew to Hong Kong and discuss the script with Fat Gor (Chow's nickname) ... but we cannot talk about the details until we sign the contract,' Chan was quoted as saying.

Meanwhile, 'Robert' pointed us to a few new updates. While the report above says two follow-up films are in development, Disney has not confirmed that yet. There might only be one sequel in the works right now. A casting call posted here does give more proof that there might be two films, given the shoot is listed as taking place from February all the way through December of 2005.

While we await announcements on the sequel, or sequels, Geoffrey Rush's rep confirmed to The Australian that his character, Barbossa, looks to be back in some compacity. An article at VFXWorld also mentions that ILM is developing the special effects for the sequels.

Location wise, The Age reports that St. Vincent is one of the shooting locations, and says Mackenzie Crook is aboard the cast.

It all started, he says, with Finding Neverland, which was made two years ago. Its director, Marc Foster, cast Crook in a minor role after watching an episode of The Office during a trans-Atlantic flight. This led to Johnny Depp recommending him for the role of Ragetti in Pirates of the Caribbean, a film so successful that, in early 2005, Crook will decamp to St Vincent to film not one, but two sequels. Former Monty Python actor-turned-film maker Terry Gilliam requested the actor's services in The Brothers Grimm, alongside Matt Damon.

Thailand is also a possible location, while the U.S. Virgin Islands and Bahamas may be part of the shoot as well.
