Italian-American actor John Turturro has been assigned to direct "1-900", the third part in the slain Dutch filmmaker Theo Van Gogh remake trilogy.
Taking a step back behind the camera in the follow-up to his 2005 effort "Romance & Cigarettes", John Turturro is about to direct "1-900", which turns out to be the third film in the Theo Van Gogh remake trilogy.
Pic is said to be a new version of slain Dutch filmmaker Van Gogh's 1994 movie "06" revolving around two lonely souls who meet through a sex chat line. It is titled after the digits required to dial such lines in the Netherlands.
The trilogy kicked off with the upcoming "Interview", a remake of Van Gogh's 2003 flick of the same name, set for a July 13 release starring Sienna Miller and Steve Buscemi, who also seats as the director. The second part, "Blind Date", is slated to start filming this month on date 28 with Stanley Tucci helming as well as starring alongside Patricia Clarkson.
