Argento begins filming THE THIRD MOTHER

Dario Argento, with his daughter Asia, started in November the shooting in Rome, Turin and Terni of his film "THE THIRD MOTHER" (The Mother of Tears) who will conclude the trilogy dedicated to the witches begun with Suspiria (1977) and Inferno (1979).

The film centers on a young American art student, Sarah (Asia), who "unwittingly opens an ancient urn that unleashes the demonic power of the world's most powerful witch. As a scourge of suicides plague the city and witches from all over the world converge on Rome to pay homage, Sarah must use all her own psychic powers to stop the 'Mother of Tears' before her evil conquers the world."

The film was written by Dario Argento, Jace Anderson, Adam Gierasch, Walter Fasano and Simona Simonetti, produced by Dario and Claudio Argento for Opera Film and distributed by Medusa Film.

In the cast there will also be Daria Nicolodi, Udo Kier, Jessica Harper, Philippe Leroy, Clive Riche and Coralina Cataldi Tassoni. The shooting will finish at the end of December and the film distribution is planned for April 2007. The music score will be composed by Claudio Simonetti.
