Dafoe, Hoskins and Modine Tell ‘Tales’


Willem Dafoe, Bob Hoskins and Matthew Modine are set to star in writer-director Abel Ferrara’s Go Go Tales, a screwball comedy that has taken an equally circuitous path to production.

Dafoe will play the owner of a New York go-go dancing club whose brother and financial backer (Modine) threatens to pull the plug on his business. The owner and his accountant (Hoskins) face a bumpy night as the strippers threaten to strike. Longtime Ferrara pal Asia Argento is attached to play a small role as one of the dancers.

Apparently this pic was supposed to begin shooting almost two years ago but suffered some complications that ended up in court and were ultimately settled. Principal photography began Monday in Rome and moves to New York in January.
