PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: AT WORLD'S END preview in USA TODAY

USA TODAY’s summer movie preview featured the following description of PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: AT WORLD’S END: “It’s the yo-ho-ho gang against that old squid puss, Davy Jones, and the weaselly Lord Beckett. What’s new? In this third chapter, a Hong Kong man of action fattens the pirate ranks. And a Stone rolls by.” Fortunately, AWE producer Jerry Bruckheimer was around to amplify those cryptic comments a bit. “Chow Yun-Fat’s character, Captain Sao Feng, is very interesting,” Mr. Bruckheimer told USA TODAY. “No one is sure what his allegiances are, to save the pirates or team up with Beckett, who now has Davy Jones’ heart and controls him. He butts heads with everyone.”

The producer also spoke enthusiastically about Keith Richards’ appearance in AT WORLD’S END as Captain Teague, a role USA TODAY describes as “Jack Sparrow’s papa and source of his gypsy-on-acid fashion sense.” Declares Mr. Bruckheimer, “He’s fantastic. Very sexy.” AT WORLD’S END will be in theaters on May 25, 2007.
