Dario Argento Is Back With New Giallo

Dario-Argento-and-Asia

Horror-meister Dario Argento will return to directing later this year, reteaming with his daughter, Asia, for a new Giallo.

First revealed last August by Alan Jones at FrightFest in London, official reports now confirm that Dario Argento will direct Occhiali Neri (Black Glasses), with shooting to take place this spring in Italy.

The film will star his daughter, actor/director (The Heart is Deceitful Above All Things) Asia Argento, as he confirmed on the  Criminology Festival website:

“Yes, I will shoot it in the spring. There are many outdoor scenes, surrounded by nature, in winter it is too cold to shoot,” he said.  “As announced there will also be Asia. Our paths have crossed many times.”

The pair have previously worked together on films including Trauma, The Stendhal Syndrome and the final film of the Three Mothers trilogy, The Mother of Tears.
