Speaking to Italian publication La Repubblica, the director, whose previous films include Suspiria and Inferno, said Daft Punk are fans of his work and when they learned he was shooting a new film got in contact with a request to work together. He added that the duo are set to send him the first songs soon, and travel to meet him in Rome when it is possible to do so.
The film is set in Rome and the surrounding countryside, and tells an adventure story centred around a Chinese woman and child. Dario’s daughter Asia Argento is in the cast and shooting is hoping to start in September.
