Author Sax Rohmer's 'Dr. Fu Manchu', first published in 1913, will return to the big screen, courtesy the Distant Horizon production company, per DH president Anant Singh.

Singh will produce the new film with Brian Cox, Harry Alan Towers and Maria Rohm.

Towers and Rohm were involved in the 1960's series of "Fu Manchu" features starring actor Christopher "Dracula" Lee, including "The Vengeance of Fu Manchu", "The Blood of Fu Manchu" and "The Castle of Fu Manchu".

The new film will reportedly be shot in China.
