Cast: Adrien Brody, Emmanuelle Seigner, Elsa Pataky
Director: Dario Argento
According to the Hollywood Reporter, Adrien Brody, Emmanuelle Seigner and Elsa Pataky
have signed on to star in GIALLO, the latest thriller from Italian horrormeister Dario
Argento. The movie 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, from a screenplay by Jim Agnew and Sean Keller, will be
produced by Rafael Primorac and Richard Rionda Del Castro.
Production is set to start May 12 in Torino, Italy, with postproduction work done in Los
Angeles. Brody is exec producing along with Oscar Generale, Claudio Argento, Luis De Val,
David Milner, Billy Dietrich, Patricia Eberle, Donald Barton and John Hicks. Claudio Argento's
Opera Films will handle production services in Italy, with Footprint Investment Fund
co-financing. Hannibal Pictures is handling worldwide sales and will be selling the film next
month at the Festival de Cannes. Brody ("The Darjeeling Limited") is repped by Red Hawk
Management. Seigner ("The Diving Bell and the Butterfly") is repped by Gersh and Untitled
Entertainment. Spanish actress Pataky's credits include "Asterix and the Olympic Games"
