Oscar winner Adrien Brody, who was awarded the Academy's highest honor for his role in the serious film, The Pianist, has joined forces with masterful Italian horror director Dario Argento of Suspiria fame for an upcoming thriller dubbed Giallo. Brody will also serve as the film's executive producer. Emmanuelle Seigner and Elsa Pataky are also set to co-star.
The film's title translates to "Yellow" in Italian and is about an American flight attendant and an Italian investigator who team up to search for her sister who has been abducted at the hands of a serial killer known simply as "Yellow." Production starts on May 12 in Torino, Italy.
Argento is Italy's ace of suspenseful horror and has been dubbed "The Italian Hitchcock," and is celebrated for his knack of combining horror with eroticism in his films. He also influenced his super hot daughter, Asia Argento, to follow in his footsteps in film.
We'd like to issue a fair warning, however. Be prepared for even the finest hairs on your arms and the back of your neck to stand on end and to be clutching the arm of whoever you go to see Giallo with, because Argento is that damn good at scaring the crap out of you.
