If you're a fan of Italian gore maestro Lucio Fulci, you'll want to stay up to date on the upcoming Fulci for Fake, a part biopic/part documentary that will tell Fulci's story with never before seen footage, photos and interviews. The film recently wrapped filming and is now in post-production.
Fulci for Fake is written and directed by Simone Scafidi.
Rue Morgue detailed the film, which "centers on an actor (played by Nicola Nocella) who is cast as Fulci in a film about the director’s life, and sets out to research the role by meeting up with people who have known and studied him."
Among those seen and heard in the movie are Fabio Frizzi, Michele Romagnoli, Sandro Bitetto, Enrico Vanzina, Sergio Salvati, Michele Soavi, Paolo Malco, Berenice Sparano and Davide Pulici, with actress Martina Troni.
Scafidi states, “It is a film made of Fulci’s blood, with the presence, for the first time, of both the director’s daughters: Antonella, the firstborn, endowed with a culture and a humanity worthy of her father, who generously made available the family’s video material, and Camilla, her father’s assistant on the set of his latest productions, who provided her first and only long video interview and unfortunately passed away after the shoot. Antonella and Camilla are the only people, perhaps, to know in depth the mystery of their own father.”
