Some slightly disturbing news reared its head over at the official site for Profondo Rosso, the Rome-based horror store who deals with a lot of Dario Argento's personal goods.
But first, the good news…The site reports that Asia Argento has agreed to star in The Mother of Tears, the third and final in Argento's long-gestating Mothers trilogy. This can only mean good things for both the director and star, and should put to rest all those rumors that the two weren't talking to one another because she passed on a role in The Card Player to work on her second directorial effort, The Heart is Deceitful Above All Things.
Now for the bad news; shooting on The Mother of Tears has been delayed to November or later. Though the site says specifically "next November", we can only hope that does not mean November of 2007, because that's a long time for Argento to go without directing something. Granted, his Masters of Horror episode, "Pelts", is what we'll see from the man next, but hopefully things will smooth out and Tears will start late this year.
More details as we learn ‘em!
