An Academy Award winner and two beautiful women have joined the cast of the latest thriller from an Italian master of horror. Adrien Brody will star as a police detective investigating a serial killer in Giallo, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The film will also star Emmanuelle Seigner (The Diving Bell and the Butterfly, La Vie en Rose) and Elsa Pataky (Asterix at the Olympic Games, Snakes on a Plane). The great Dario Argento will be at the controls in the director's chair.

Brody steps into the gumshoe role originally filled by Ray Liotta and Seigner will take over the part intended for the pregnant Asia Argento. Monika told us about the casting and the basic premise in January: a serial slasher played by Vincent Gallo is on the loose. THR updates that, saying the tale "revolves around an American flight attendant who teams with an Italian investigator to search for her missing sister who has been abducted by a serial killer known only as Yellow."

New York-born Brody will play an Italian and Paris-born Seigner will play an American? I can't wait to hear the bad accents flying! If we wish really hard, maybe it will all get dubbed? Viva Argento! I love this guy, and Scott said his last one, The Mother of Tears, was really good too. Filming was scheduled to start last month, but the start of production in Torino, Italy, has now been pushed back to May.
