The 7 Golden Vampires Back for Another Bite?

Back in 1974, my favorite horror studio in the universe, Hammer House released a unique flick combining the classic Hammer style vampire movies and traditional style kung fu flicks.  The result starred Grand Moff Tarkin,  in the other role that made him famous, as Professor Van Helsing and was fun as hell.  Now we all know that my industry is nuts about remakes, but I never in a million years thought that this basically lost gem would get the treatment.  But lo and behold today on Bloody Disgusting comes this bit of news:

We received an interesting scoop this evening as we’ve learned that Spitfire Pictures is producing ‘The Legend of the 7 Golden Vampires’, a remake of the classic 1974 Hammer Film starring Peter Cushing. Professor Van Helsing (Cushing) and Count Dracula (John Forbes-Robinson) meet again in this kung fu horror spectacular set in the village of Ping Kuei. After learning about the Seven Golden Vampires of the village, Hsi Ching (David Chiang), Vanessa Beren, and Mai Kwei offer to guide Ven Helsing and his son to Ping Kuei to free it from the curse of Count Dracula. Throughout their journey, the party encounters several unwanted attackers until they arrive at the golden vampires’ derelict temple, inhabited by Count Dracula. It is here, in this eerie place, where Van Heling and the Count begin a battle-to-the-death where good and evil collide, and only one man is left standing.

Dear who ever borrowed my copy ages ago and never returned it,
I miss it very much, please send it to me now.  Thanks.
