Tinto Brass' stereoscopic 3-D erotic comedy Who Killed Caligula? (Chi ha ucciso Caligola?) is now scheduled to start shooting in July.

Here's a synopsis for Who Killed Caligula? from the international sales agent for the movie, FilmExport Group s.r.l.: "The Roman Emperor Caligula who is exposed to continuous conspiracies is no longer safe even in his palace and as humiliating as it may seem, he is forced to go to a luxurious brothel to satisfy his sexual appetite. Nevertheless, it is there where he loses his life to an absurd accident; however his right-arm man, Timocle devises a plan to try to make his undignified death more respectful. Timocle will be supported by Messalina. They had devised a plan that has been used way before their time. The plan has a name, Caligula's double 'Asdrubale', a man currently imprisoned and carefully guarded by the prison guard, Nasone. No one will notice that the Emperor is missing; they will take Asdrubale to the palace and a few days later, they will kill him, making it seem like a conspiracy act. Then, they will simply switch the bodies and that's it of course... problem solved. The plan seems very simple, but they need to hurry up: the Emperor's body is starting to rot. However, it will not be easy to hide the manners of 'that boorish man' of Asdrubale, definitely not fit for an Emperor's role. It will be very hard to continue to make everyone believe that such a man can pass for the Emperor. Servants, soldiers... everybody is just watching their master's behaviour; especially the slaves: all the sudden the Emperor has become a very passionate man - a real sex machine. Of course, when Messalina discovered all that intense pleasure that foolish man could give her, she started to change her mind about killing him: she wanted him all for herself. There is no way she'll let him die. At this point, time is running out; Timocle is fighting against time and he plans a conspiracy with some senators so that once the Emperor is dead, he can rely on them for a favour. The 'X' day has been set; what's going to happen? The 'X' day is a theatrical act where Caligula normally enjoyed participating as an actor. This is what's going to happen, despite Timocle's and Messalina's interests being opposed, everyone will be pleased at the end. The Emperor will be stabbed during the act. Does this mean that Messalina has lost the battle? Certainly not, she never loses: she is actually the one to give an original twist, because the actual person to die will be the horrible prison guard, Nasone; and this is how Messalina will keep Asdrubale for perpetual indulgence."
