Tilda Swinton, Dakota Johnson, Mia Goth and Chloë Grace Moretz are already part of Luca Guadagnino’s (A Bigger Splash) remake of Dario Argento’s Suspiria.

The film follows Susy Bannion, a young American woman who travels to the prestigious Markos Tanz Company in Berlin in 1977, arriving just as one of its members, Patricia, has disappeared under mysterious circumstances. As Susy 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.

The latest news has Jessica Harper joining the film. She played Suzy, the lead character in the original film. In the remake she is playing a character called Anke. Her last big screen roll was as Anne Lively in Steven Spielberg’s Minority Report.

In the new film Dakota Johnson is playing Suzy and Tilda Swinton is playing Madame Blanc.

They’re really going to have to knock this new version out of the park to get close to the original. The fact Tilda Swinton is involved means I will still be seeing it as I do enjoy her in pretty much everything I have seen her in.

Amazon Studios has acquired the worldwide distribution rights and is financing the production.

What are your thoughts on the Suspiria remake?
