Filmmaker Luca Guadagnino (“I Am Love”) will reunite with his “A Bigger Splash” Dakota Johnson and Tilda Swinton for his remake of Dario Argento’s most iconic film “Suspiria” says Culture Whisper (via The Playlist).
Originally slated to shoot over the winter, he now indicates filming will begin this Fall. Famed classic composer John Adams will do the score for the project which is said to have a Rainer Werner Fassbinder-style influence.
The original 1977 film follows an American ballet student who transfers to a prestigious dance academy in Germany but later realizes the academy is a front for something far more sinister and supernatural amidst a series of murders.
Guadagnino takes over from David Gordon Green at the helm of this new film which he says is high on his priority list. The action of the new one will retain the 1977 time period of the original but move the location to Berlin.
Guadagnino’s “A Bigger Splash” opens in the United States on May 4th.
