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.

SEEN thoroughly enjoyed a preview of the 18 new artworks around the financial district’s square mile. Set up by The City of London in 2010, this excellent initiative expands its footprint every year, improving the area and proving that when people are happy, they work better.

Alex Evans at the Foundry Gallery, Chelsea Quarter: LDF17

The astute reader will have noticed that SEEN loves art about London. There are many artists in this city who draw (pun intended) their inspiration from it, none more so than Alex Evans whose fractal renderings hint at the entropic nature of urban life and perhaps also our anxieties and isolation in the 21st century. His latest exhibition ‘Invisible Systems’ can be seen at the Foundry Gallery, tucked away off the King’s Road until 26th October.
