According to a new story on the NY Daily News, Vincent Gallo is making his departure from the next Dario Argento film, Giallo, despite how similar his last name is to the title.
“After they cast Asia Argento, I’ve been trying to get out of it,” Gallo told the paper, “I’d rather not be in a movie with her … I’m not a fan. I was a fan of her father’s. I’m retiring.” Don’t worry, it’s not that he disapproves of anything Asia’s done career-wise; the two were once engaged to be married and he obviously doesn’t want to deal with her again since it seems it didn’t end well for either side.
Nothing official has been said yet, and note Gallo said he’s trying to get out of it, so we’ll have to see what happens. Should make for some interesting on-screen tension if he’s not able to get away from the project.
Gallo was set to play a serial killer on the run from a detective (Ray Liotta). The killer kidnaps a fashion model right as her sister, played by Asia, gets to Milan to meet her on a shoot. Hopefully monkey and midget-free hijinks occur.
