Hammer Films, one of the U.K.'s oldest production companies, has been reinvigorated and they want their king, Christopher Lee!
The iconic actor, synonymous with Hammer Films, joins the cast of "Invasion of Privacy" alongside Hilary Swank and Jeffrey Dean Morgan.
The film will mark Antti J. Jokinsen's directorial debut.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, the movie details the story of a woman who, after separating from her husband, moves into a loft apartment in Brooklyn, New York and finds herself at the center of some unwanted attention.
Hhhmmmm, could it be that Mister Lee will play the one showering Swank some unwanted attention?
Meanwhile, let's take a look back at Lee's long, fruitful, and scare-licious relationship with Hammer Films. I remember watching all of these films when I was a kid, so yeah, I'm excited to see "Invasion of Privacy" when it comes out.

Well not that strange, but Keanu has been attached to star in Universal's retelling of "The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde."
At least they hired a superb writer, Justin Haythe, the guy who wrote the adaptation of the searing "Revolutionary Road."
It is now going to be called simply "Jekyll" and
Nicolas Winding Refn is in talks to direct the project.
Based on Robert Louis Stevenson's influential novel, we'll see Keanu transform from a gentle doctor to an evil version of himself! All the angst! The anger! The drama! The horror!
But wait, Universal also commissioned Guillermo Del Toro to work on ANOTHER "Jekyll and Hyde" adventure, but the director is supposed to stick with Stevenson's vision.
Clearly, our friends at Universal really, really want a "Jekyll and Hyde" film, they're making two projects based on the gothic tale!

Sacha Baron Cohen aka Bruno unveiled a new video on his "Meinspace" page. Cohen's alter ego, Bruno, the gay fashionista from Austria, is the star of the actor's upcoming mockumentary opening July 10.
In his new video, it shows Bruno crashing a Milan fashion show!
I can't wait for this film! I loved "Borat" and the director of that film, Larry Charles, is also helming "Bruno."
Check out "Bruno's" Meinspace page here.

Vin Diesel is going fast and furious as "Wheelman," a videogame adaptation where the actor is the game's main character. Diesel is also the videogame's producer.
John Singleton is set to direct for Paramount Pictures. Diesel will play an expert driver who comes out of retirement (don't they all?) to protect a woman from his past.
