Here we go, finally! Part three of Dario Argento’s infamous “Three Mothers” trilogy, Mother of Tears, is finally ready to roll! Today Fangoria got word that the film will get behind the lens this month and also got some more details from writer Adam Gierasch. Read on for the skinny. We’re told that the film takes place in Rome and has to do with Mater Lachrymarum (The Third Mother).Fangoria just spoke with prolific genre scripter Adam (TOOLBOX MURDERS) Gierasch, who reveals that he and partner Jace Anderson are preparing to wing their way over to Rome for the filming of Dario Argento’s MOTHER OF TEARS, which they wrote with the Italian horror maestro (pictured). “It starts shooting in late October,” Gierasch tells us, “and I’m so excited about it, I can’t speak. It’s going to be everything everyone wants it to be. It’s very, very Dario. It’s a fairly big movie, taking place in a number of different locations, and it has a bunch of very scary bad guys in it. And it’s easily going to be one of his bloodiest movies; there are scenes that are just ridiculously gruesome. Working with Dario has been fantastic; he’s so creative and so precise, and he’s very excited about the project too.”
MOTHER OF TEARS, the third in the Argento trilogy begun by SUSPIRIA and INFERNO, will lens in Rome and Turin, with a cast including a number of familiar faces for the director’s fans: Daria Nicolodi, their daughter Asia Argento and SUSPIRIA’s Udo Kier, “who plays a priest/exorcist,” according to Gierasch.
