Dario Argento Prepping new thriller The Sandman for 2015 Release

Cool news for those of us that are huge fans of Italian horror maestro Dario Argento. It appears as though the master of horror is at it again. He is prepping his latest film The Sandman, for a release sometime in 2015, and well I haven't been the biggest fan of Argentos recent work, anything the man does piques my interest. Check out some info on Argentos latest opus:

"The Sandman tells the story of Nathan, a young student in the city who struggles to forget his childhood trauma at the hands of the serial killer dubbed "The Sandman". Nathan killed The Sandman years ago, on Christmas Eve, after he witnessed the murder of his mother...until he sees the beautiful woman who lives in the apartment across the way dying at the hands of that same masked killer. This brutal murder plunges Nathan into an odyssey into the night country of his past, his dreams...and the buried secrets of The Sandman."

Taken from a script and story written by David Tully based on the short story by E.T.A Hoffmann and Produced by Daniela Tully, Jeff Rogers and Rob Heydon, the film will star none other than punk rock icon Iggy Pop! Iggy has starred in other such seminal films as John Waters Cry-Baby and The Crow : City of Angels.
