A few months after word reached us that Harry Alan Towers is working on a new Fu Manchu movie, Variety reports that a group of German companies are looking to bring back another classic villain with horror ties: the notorious criminal mastermind Dr. Mabuse, first immortalized by Fritz Lang in 1922's Dr. Mabuse - The Gambler. The new take on Mabuse comes from Rat Pack Filmproduktion, Universum, and CCC Filmkunst. The latter company is run by Artur Brauner, who previously produced seven Mabuse films, starting with Lang's last entry in the series, 1960's The Thousand Eyes of Dr. Mabuse. Filming is set to start later this year.
