ARGENTO RAISES THIRD MOTHER

Fango correspondent Alan Jones writes in with a cool Dario Argento scoop:

It?s the big news every Dario Argento fan has been waiting to hear. The Italian genre maestro, whose latest giallo IL CARTAIO/THE CARD PLAYER opens in Rome on January 2, has revealed that he?s currently working on the script for the long-anticipated third part of his Three Mothers trilogy, which began with SUSPRIA and continued in INFERNO. On November 29, at the Trieste Science Plus Fiction Festival in Northern Italy, where he received the Urania D?Argento Lifetime Achievement Award (handed out by the Montadori Publishing Group to directors who have had a major impact on the Italian movie scene), Argento told Fango about LA TERZA MADRE/THE THIRD MOTHER, as the new movie will be titled.

?I?m working on the script for THE THIRD MOTHER now,? he reveals. ?I originally planned to direct OCCHIALI NERI/BLACK GLASSES [a giallo in the CAT O?NINE TAILS mode] next, but that is now dead. I will start shooting THE THIRD MOTHER in August 2004, and a major Hollywood studio may possibly get involved in the financing. It will revolve around mysticism, alchemy, terrorism and Gnosticism [a religious movement believing in intuitive spiritual knowledge]. So many people were tortured because the Church said Gnosticism was heresy, and that will be the starting point for the story.

It will be set in Rome,? he continues, ?where we will first see the Mother of Tears/Mater Lachrymorum in medieval times. She is the most beautiful and cruel of the three mothers [Maters Suspiriorum and Tenebrarum complete the trio], and I?m currently looking at Russian models to play that cameo part. Ana Pieroni [who played the cat-stroking mother in a brief scene in the music lecture room in INFERNO, and also appeared in TENEBRAE and THE HOUSE BY THE CEMETERY] will not be reappearing, as she now has five kids!

?It has been over 20 years since I left the Three Mothers behind,? Argento muses, ?and it has felt surprisingly good to go back and explore the whole story from a retrospective point of view. I?m discovering more about witchcraft than ever before and, as I?m living all that at the moment, I?m once more sleeping with great difficulty.?
