For Fango #302, horror maestro Dario Argento was recently interviewed by his friend and fellow Italian genre director Luigi Cozzi. Among the subjects discussed was a bit of news that we just couldn’t wait to share with you: the return of fellow countryman Michele Soavi to the scare scene!
“Michele has told me that he has started to write the script for a special horror project he plans to shoot between the end of 2011 and the beginning of 2012: a sequel to his Gothic masterpiece DELLAMORTE DELLAMORE, a.k.a. CEMETERY MAN,” Cozzi tells us. “He’s going to produce it himself and wants it to really be a great, strong, shocking Italian horror movie.”
Absent from the director’s chair for several years after 1994’s DELLAMORTE, Soavi did several TV movies between 1999 and 2007, and returned to the big-screen scene with the 2006 crime thriller ARRIVEDERCI AMORE, CIAO (a.k.a. THE GOODBYE KISS). His last feature was 2008’s historical drama IL SANGUE DEI VINTI (BLOOD OF THE LOSERS). There’s no word yet on whether Rupert Everett will return as zombie-killing graveyard keeper Francesco Dellamorte [pictured above] in the follow-up film, but we will of course keep you posted on further developments.
And there’s more on Soavi’s slate: “Michele also told me,” Cozzi reports, “that he’s probably gonna shoot, in 2011, a movie in the style of THE GOONIES, starring Nicolas Cage, about some boys’ adventures in Pompeii, the dead Roman city near the Vesuvius volcano, while searching for a hidden treasure.” We’re looking forward to finding out more about this one too!
