Multi award-winning director Peter Strickland, who was in Berlin competition last year with Katalina Varga, is plotting a new Italy-set horror film. The project, called Berberian Sound Studio, is being made through the UK’s Illuminations Films and digital film studio Warp X. The film will follow an English sound engineer who goes to work in an Italian sound studio that handles many of the country’s nastiest horror flicks. Illuminations’ Keith Griffiths and Simon Field, and Peter Carlton and Robin Gutch from Warp, are producing the film. The Italian and English-language film is due to shoot later this year.
