If you live in the U.S. and you're hoping to see Giallo, the Dario Argento horror movie starring Adrien Brody, any time soon, well, somebody just killed that hope—Adrien Brody.

As we reported last month, the Academy Award-winning star sued Giallo's producers to prevent the release of the film until he was paid $640,000 he was owed on the project.

According to the New York Times, the court has ruled in Brody's favor:

On Monday Judge Dale S. Fischer of United States District Court in Los Angeles ruled on the matter, writing that Mr. Brody was "suffering, and will continue to suffer, immediate and irreparable harm" unless the release of the film is halted. A lawyer representing the Giallo producers did not immediately comment to The A.P.

Of course, this ruling only blocks the film "from distribution or sale in the United States," so those of you outside the U.S. still can see the new horror film from the director of Suspiria.

Let us know what you thought of it, OK?
