First reported by ShockTillYouDrop.com, Variety has now confirmed that Italian horror master Dario Argento will direct Giallo, an English-language homage to the genre that made him a cult helmer, with Vincent Gallo, and Argento’s daughter Asia Argento attached to star.
Ray Liotta is also in advanced negotiations to join the Giallo cast.
Argento’s latest thriller will revolve around serial slashings of some very attractive women being investigated by a solitary cop, which Liotta is likely to play, who engages in a cat-and-mouse game with the phsychopathic perpetrator, to be played by Gallo.
The screenplay is by scribes Jim Agnew and Sean Keller. Shooting starts in February in Turin.
