The article tells us that at the moment an Italian production company is in the stages of pre-production of making a television series of the Italian fumetti "Diabolik" for an international probably European audience. The role of Eva Kant will be played by Italian new comer "Carolina Crescentini" who made movies like «Notte prima degli esami» e «Parlami d' amore. The role of Diabolik will be played by a French actor whose name still has to be confirmed by the production company. Because this series will be an international coproduction with investors from different countries the actors have to represent the different countries that are investing. So you'll get a very international cast, down to the non speaking parts. To test the market for the acceptance of the series, the first season will consist of only 6 episodes. Carolina Crescentini tells that Eva Kant is a symbol of feminity for her and not comparable with other heroines. Although she is absolutely in love with her man, they are partners in crime in every sense of the word! She is not subjugated like so many other women in love or heroines in comics. The actress loves the fact that the character, although very sensual and having a magnetic attraction, always is in control even in the most difficult and dangerous situations. Eva Kant is a real warrior. She never loses her self control, calm and always finds the best way to achieve her goal. In short, she has a solid character and does not compromise! To play this part the actress tells us that she does aerobics for years and that she also loves boxing. Although doing all the rough things Eva Kant does she never loses her elegance and that is very important. Carolina Crescentini is born in Rome, Italy, on April 18th, 1980.
So there you have it! The winner is Carolina Crescentini as the new Eva Kant for the Diabolik television series. Question remains if this series will actually be made in the months to come! A lot of attempts have been made in the past to bring Diabolik and his partner to the big or small screen! For one reason or another all those live action attempts failed. A lot of actresses and models have been cast in the past to play the companion of Diabolik, like Elsa Martinelli, Catherine Deneuve or Marilu Tolo but the fact remains that only Marisa Mell has played the part on the big screen more than 40 years ago and that she is still the reigning queen. After all those years a lot of fans can only see one Eva Kant on the screen and that is in the person of Marisa Mell. Carolina Crescentini will have a very difficult task ahead of her! Will she be able to forget Marisa Mell and become the new face of Eva Kant??? Time will tell but don't hold your breath!
