Jessica Harper, who played the lead role of Suzy Bannion in Dario Argento’s 1977 horror masterpiece “Suspiria,” has joined the cast of Luca Guadagnino’s upcoming remake.
Dakota Johnson, Tilda Swinton, Chloe Grace Moretz, and Mia Goth also star in the film which will retain the original’s 1970s setting. The story follows a young American woman who travels to the prestigious Markos Tanz Ballet Company in Berlin in 1977, arriving just as one of its members, Patricia, has disappeared under mysterious circumstances.
As Susie makes extraordinary progress under the guidance of Madame Blanc, the Company’s feverish 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.
Production kicks off soon for a 2017 release.
