Italian production company IDF, owned by actress Maria Grazia Cucinotta (Il Postino) has begun principal photography on Federico Zampaglione’s eagerly-awaited third feature, Tulpa.
Award-winning actress Claudia Gerini, who has just completed a leading role as Marie Cecile in Christopher Smith’s TV adaptation of “Labyrinth,” stars as “Lisa Boeri, a respectable and upwardly mobile businesswoman who, by night, frequents the notorious sex club ‘Tulpa’ in search of dangerous forms of pleasure. When her lovers start getting murdered in horrible ways, to avoid a personal scandal, she tries to deal with it herself with truly nightmare consequences.”
Tulpa also stars Michele Placido (Romanzo Criminale), one of Italy’s most renowned actors/directors, alongside Nuot Arquint (Shadow) and Michela Cescon (Sacred Heart).
Shot entirely on location in Rome over five-weeks, Tulpa is based on a story by genre veteran Dardano Sacchetti, with a screenplay by Giacomo Gensini and Federico Zampaglione. It is produced by IDF, Giovanni Emidi and Silvia Natill in association with Federico Zampaglione and Claudia Gerini. Director of photography is Giuseppe Di Maio. Make up and Special Effects are by Leonardo Cruciano & Bruno Albi Marini with music by Francesco Zampaglione and The Alvarius.
