‘Phoenix’ remake rises

Tennenbaum signs on for Hong Kong comedy

“Bourne” franchise producer Andrew R. Tennenbaum will produce a remake of Hong Kong action comedy “Enter the Phoenix.”

Tennenbaum’s L.A.-based Flashpoint Entertainment acquired remake rights from Jackie Chan’s JCE Movies.

Original 2004 pic was directed and co-scripted by Stephen Fung, who also starred. Chan, Albert Yeung and Willie Chan produced the movie, which Yeung’s Emperor Motion Pictures repped for international territories.

Tennenbaum, who is in post on Paul Greengrass’ “The Bourne Ultimatum” for Universal and on soccer docu “Fandemonium,” is seeking writers and a helmer for the project.

“Stephen tells a great story and has a terrific sense of humor. This movie should be remade for a bigger, broader audience,” Tennenbaum said.

Deal was brokered by WMA’s Shanghai office.
