Christopher Lee Finally Returns to Hammer   

May 16, 2009 While the follow up to "The Wicker Man," which was also supposed to star him, remains in limbo, it seems that Chrisopher Lee had time to star in the next movie from Hammer Films.

We're actually quite a bit late in reporting on this, but it's necessary to cover it, it's such major news -- even though Hammer ain't the company that it used to be.

The Hollywood Reporter reports:

New look, new investment but a familiar face for Hammer Films, one of the U.K.'s oldest production labels, as Christopher Lee joins the cast of the reinvigorated company's latest project.

Lee has signed up to star alongside double Oscar winner Hilary Swank and Jeffrey Dean Morgan in Antti J. Jokinen's directorial debut, "Invasion of Privacy," previously titled "The Resident."

Backed by Exclusive Media Group, the parent company for both Hammer Films and Spitfire Pictures, the film reunites Lee, who starred in a slew of horror pictures in the 1960s and 1970s made by Hammer Productions.

It doesn't sound like an old school Hammer film, but any horror thriller with Christopher Lee in its cast gains an extra star at least.
