Tilda Swinton Set to Star in Suspiria

Once the muse of the late Derek Jarman, and now of Luca Guadagnino, Tilda Swinton is set to star in a remake of seventies’ cult classic Suspiria, as famous for its atmospheric soundtrack by The Goblins, as for its extraordinary direction by giallo master, Dario Argento.

Once the muse of the late Derek Jarman, and now of Luca Guadagnino, Tilda Swinton is set to star in a remake of seventies’ cult classic Suspiria, as famous for its atmospheric soundtrack by The Goblins, as for its extraordinary direction by giallo master, Dario Argento.

Suspiria (which translates as ‘Sighs’) follows the fortunes of a young dancer Suzy, who travels to Germany to attend a top dance school. Other young dancers are murdered, and Suzy discovers that there are supernatural forces at work in the school.

Chloë Grace Moretz is rumoured to be playing Suzy; Mia Goth and Dakota Johnson are also thought to be cast. Swinton’s role is not yet confirmed, but doubtless she will bring her trademark unsettling androgyny to bear. Amazon Studios are set to distribute the film next year, coinciding with the original Suspiria’s 40th anniversary.

Luca Guadagnino, director of A Bigger Splash and I am Love is sure to bring a gorgeously filmed high melodrama to his remake. SEEN is very curious to learn who will create the new soundtrack.
