Starring in the new film by Abel Ferrara


Matthew Modine is set to make a bravura return to film with a starring role in a new film from Abel Ferrara (“Bad Lieutenant”).

The 80s icon – whose string of hits include “Full Metal Jacket” and “Married to the Mob” – has jumped aboard a movie that The Hollywood Reporter states is “a screwball comedy that has taken an equally circuitous path to production”.

In “Go, Go Tales”, Willem Dafoe will play the owner of a New York go-go dancing club whose brother and financial backer (Modine) threatens to pull the plug on his business. The owner and his accountant (Bob Hoskins) face a bumpy night as the strippers threaten to strike. Longtime Ferrara pal Asia Argento is attached to play a small role as one of the dancers.

Ferrara originally was slated to begin principal photography on the project in January 2005, but after several territories were presold, the production never got off the ground. According to a statement from Bellatrix Media, which is producing the project, Italian state film organization Istituto Luce and producer Gam Film filed suit against the director, who then filed a counterclaim against them. The parties settled out of court, with the screenplay rights and Ferrara’s services turning over to producer Bellatrix, owned by Swiss entrepreneur Massimo Gatti.
