ASIA ARGENTO LEAVES CARD DEALER
While hanging out in Italy around the set of EXORCIST: THE BEGINNING, FANGORIA learned that Dario Argento's new horror film - THE CARD DEALER - set to lens in the coming weeks in Rome has lost its star, Dario's daughter, Asia Argento. The movie, a FEAR DOT COM-esque giallo flick about a serial killer who taunts the police over the internet, has been thrown for a bit of a loop finance-wise because of the loss of the currently high-profile Asia, but has pressed on, finding a new lead in Stefania (Roger Young's DRACULA mini-series) Rocca. While Fangoria was on the EXORCIST set on the Cinecitta stages, Argento reportedly was also at Cinecitta looking over initial special effects tests.
