Oscar Winner Joins Argento’s ‘Giallo’

Adrien Brody (Splice), Emmanuelle Seigner (The Ninth Gate) and Elsa Pataky have signed on to star in Giallo, the latest thriller from Italian horrormeister Dario Argento. “Giallo” revolves around an American flight attendant who teams with an Italian investigator to search for her missing sister who has been abducted by a serial killer known only as Yellow. The term “giallo” means “yellow” in Italian and also refers to the Italian pulp, horror and erotic genre of film and literature. Argento has built his name with movies that combine horror and eroticism such as 1977′s “Suspiria” and last year’s “The Mother of Tears.” “Giallo” might mark the first time an actor of Brody’s caliber has starred in an Argento film. The film is written by Jim Agnew and Sean Keller. Production is set to start May 12 in Torino, Italy, with postproduction work done in Los Angeles.
