Dario Argento's 1977 classic Horror film SUSPIRIA is considered by many fans to be one of the very best movies ever made. Plans to create a remake were talked about for a while but never amounted to anything. There were even ideas for the film to take the possible television series route.
Then back in 2015 we learned that Italian filmmaker Luca Guadagnino had been selected to replace David Gordon Green as director for the SUSPIRIA remake.
With original star Jessica Harper firmly on board, we know that this project is moving along nicely, and the first teaser poster from artist Dan Perri has arrived for the film.
Dakota Johnson will be taking on the heroine role which Harper portrayed in the original film. Tilda Swinton is also on board, and is expected to play one of the witches that run the dance academy.
Chloë Grace Moretz is also part of the cast and will likely be playing one of the students at the dance academy. Mia Goth joins the rest of the ladies as she too is expected to portray one of the students at the academy.
Director Luca Guadagnino's career has mostly been made up of shorts and documentaries. He has a few feature dramas to his credit including the thriller A BIGGER SPLASH, which is a remake of 1969's LA PISCINE
Guadagnino previously stated about his SUSPIRIA project that he has high hopes of getting composer John Adams on board, and that he is taking a Fassbinderian approach to the remake.
“Susie Bannion, a young American woman, travels to the prestigious Markos Tanz Company in Berlin in the year 1977. She arrives just as one of the Company’s members, Patricia, has disappeared under mysterious circumstances. As Susie makes extraordinary progress under the guidance of Madame Blanc, the Company’s revolutionary artistic director, she befriends another dancer, Sara, who shares her suspicions that the Matrons, and the Company itself, may be harboring a dark and menacing secret.”
David Kajganich wrote the script which is based on Dario Argento's classic film.
Look for the SUSPIRIA remake to arrive this fall.
