Hollywood star Chow Yun-fat is making his first film in Hong Kong in a decade, saying he would forgo a higher pay check in the United States because he liked the part and wanted to work with the director.

The "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon" star has agreed to appear in Ann Hui's "The Aunt's Postmodern Life," playing a swindler who falls in love with a potential victim played by Siqin Gaowa.

"I agreed to this movie because I haven't worked with Ann in a long time. I admire her and Siqin Gaowa a lot.

Plus the role I was offered in this movie is something new. I've never played a swindler before, so I want to try," Chow told the Apple Daily's Sunday edition.

The newspaper said that Chow was also due to shoot a movie about an ancient Chinese war with fellow Hong Konger John Woo and a film about an ancient Chinese empress with famed Chinese art-house director Zhang Yimou.

He is also slated to appear in the third installment of "Pirates of the Caribbean."
