The Return of Fu Manchu


Production company Distant Horizon (Prey) has hired screenwriters Eddie and Chris Borey (Open Grave) to revive Sax Rohmer's pulp villain Fu Manchu for a new film, according to Variety.com. Distant Horizon will be co-producing the as-yet untitled film with Harry Alan Towers, who produced a series of Fu Manchu flicks starring Christopher Lee in the 1960s, and Maria Rohm, who acted in The Vengeance of Fu Manchu and The Blood of Fu Manchu.

The character was last seen in a cameo in Rob Zombie's fake Grindhouse trailer, "Werewolf Women of the SS", portrayed by Nicholas Cage.
