Rocco Siffredi to Star in Mainstream Horror Flick ‘Red Academy’

Movie biz trade rag Variety reports that adult film legend Rocco Siffredi will star in “Red Academy,” an English-language mainstream horror film to be shot entirely in Siffredi’s compound-like academy for aspiring porn stars.

Rome-based True Colours has taken world sales on the film to be directed by Italy’s Alessio Liguori, whose previous chiller, the English-language “In the Trap,” was sold widely by the company earlier this year in Cannes. “Trap” signalled the resurgence of Italy’s capability to churn out genre films that can travel amid the growing global appetite for horror titles.

In “Red Academy,” two best friends named Ricky and Eve become bored with their European vacation and to spice it up visit the Rocco Siffredi Academy in Budapest. This turns out to be “a shocking journey” into a scary “underground world where mystical rituals mix with faith,” and “domination melts into adoration and violence,” according to promotional materials.

Siffredi will play “a mysterious and disturbing character” inspired by who he is in his real life. Casting for the other lead roles is under way.

Principal photography on “Red Academy”  is planned to start in the second half of 2020. Just just like “In the Trap,” the film will be produced by Italian shingles Dreamworld Movies and Mad Rocket Entertainment.

Siffredi, Europe’s most famous adult film star and director, has also starred in two arthouse pics, French director Catherine Breillat’s “Romance” and “Anatomy of Hell.”
