Isabella Leong may make a showbiz comeback next month after spending five years away from the entertainment scene.

Hong Kong director Fruit Chan had recently announced plans to produce a new science fiction movie, adapted from Hong Kong's popular online novel Lost on a Red Minibus to Taipo.

Slated to begin filming early next month, he mentioned, "No one is better suited to portray as Yuki [female lead in the novel] than Isabella. The executive producer has already contacted her and we're still awaiting her reply."

The former actress dated Hong Kong billionaire Richard Li and quit showbiz for love in 2008. She gave birth to their first son in the same year and a pair of twin sons in June 2010.

The 24-year-old, who resides in Canada, has been taking care of her three sons since announcing her split with Richard in March 2011.

Acting has always been Isabella's passion and she has reportedly hoped to return to showbiz again "if there is a good script." Many movie companies have also approached her throughout the years and they are looking forward to her comeback.
