Claudio Argento (born 15 September 1943) is an Italian film producer and screenwriter. Most of the titles he has produced have been the horror films directed by his older brother, Dario Argento. One major exception was Alejandro Jodorowsky's cult film Santa Sangre (1989);[1] in addition to producing, Claudio Argento co-wrote the screenplay for the film. Argento was an associate producer for George A. Romero's Dawn of the Dead (1978).

In 2010, Claudio contacted George A. Romero about directing a 3D remake of Dario's classic Deep Red and told Romero that Dario would also be involved in the project. Romero, who showed interest in the film decided to contact Dario, who said he knew nothing about the remake, Romero declined the offer to direct the remake and it is unknown if Claudio plans to go forward with the remake.[2][3]
