Dario Argento Writing New Horror Movie and “Book of Black Fairytales”

Oh good, so Dracula 3D won’t be his last horror film.

As we noted last month, Dario Argento is working on a new horror movie that he’s been particularly coy about. All Argento really said at the time was that he was he developing “something new” that falls into the horror genre, and he expounded upon that in the tiniest bit in a new chat with the website Dark Universe. When they pressed for more details, Argento replied:

I’m writing a new film, along with an American writer. {It] should be shot in Canada, although it is not sure yet.

What else is Argento up to? He’s writing a book! The Italian master of horror told the site:

And, at the same time, I’m also writing a book of black fairy tales for adults.

We’re eager to hear more about both projects and we’ll let you know when we do.

    I love what he did for both his installments for the Showtime Masters of Horror series (Jenifer and Pelts), so I’m curious to see what he comes up with.

    • Peter Kushing

      Those were almost too good, compared to what he’s done over the last 15-20 years.

      • Wil McMullen

        I 100% agree with you. I whole-heartedly believe this was due to fact that he was directing scripts herald by other people (I believe Steven Weber wrote Jenifer). Thats exactly why im a litlle cirious about his next directorial effort, he has someone helping him co- write.

    What happened to the project he and Iggy Pop were/ are working on?

    • Wil McMullen

      I think it was called Sandman? I was wondering the same thing.

  • Wil McMullen

    There were elements to ‘Mother of Tears’ that i actually did enjoy. I wasnt the biggest fan of that particular film though. I loved that scene with the cat too btw. I found myself giggling at the awesome-absurdness of that whole scene.

    awesome i want that book. hope the
    movie be good.

  • What about “The Sandman”??

  • cinetredici

    Anything that Argento feels like pursuing, I am excited about. That man’s legacy is possibly the strongest in all of horror cinema. I honestly can’t think of another genre filmmaker with a better filmography. I thinks it’s a little sad that we seem to have this “what have you done for me lately” attitude when it comes to him.

    • KundaliniRising

      Don’t know if you’d consider his filmography better, but John Carpenter is up there as far as genre filmmakers.

      • cinetredici

        Carpenter is a great one! He is one of the very few that have broken the “10 great movies” barrier as well. Wow, looking at it right now. He might actually have Argento beat! I have Carpenter at 14, and Argento at 11 (not including TV). Argento did however produce “Dawn of the Dead”, “Demons”, “Demons 2”, “The Church”, and “The Sect”, and he wrote “Once Upon a Time in the West”.
