Individual Entry


So who’s really in Mother of Tears?

There’s been a lot of speculation regarding the cast of Dario Argento’s upcoming conclusion to the Three Mothers trilogy, Mother of Tears. Back when it was originally announced, an Italian film news site ran a bogus story featuring a made-up synopsis and attaching several actors who, as it turns out, have nothing to do with the film. The real story has since emerged (and been pulled, presumably because US producer Myriad Pictures doesn’t want people to look forward to the movie), and several actors have come forward to confirm that they are appearing in it. Therefore, without further ado, the full list of attached names and whether or not they’re really attached:

  • Asia Argento - Yes
  • Chiara Caselli - No
  • Ennio Fantastichini - No
  • Valeria Golino - No
  • Udo Kier - Yes
  • Sienna Miller - No
  • Daria Nicolodi - Yes
  • Giordano Petri* - No
  • Coralina Cataldi-Tassoni - Yes
  • Max von Sydow - No

There you go. The cast of Non Ho Sonno ain’t in this one, people, so I strongly recommend ignoring anything in the film’s IMDB profile, as some fool keeps adding those erroneous names to it almost as quickly as I can delete them.

* This person doesn’t even seem to exist, given that Mother of Tears is the only film in his IMDB profile.

Hint on roles, so far? It would be ironically fun to have Asia play the Mother, since she's the daughter of Dario&Daria.

Asia is playing the lead character, Sarah Mandy. No-one else’s characters have been announced yet, unfortunately, although it would be neat if Udo Kier reprised his role from Suspiria.

Giordano is in the movie. He's a friend of mine and I know for sure he's in it.
