Jessica Harper Returns For Luca Guadagnino’s ‘Suspiria’ Remake

Jessica Harper

We just got word from Amazon Studios that Jessica Harper, who starred as Suzy Bannion in the original Dario Argento 1977 classic Suspiria, has joined the cast of Luca Guadagnino’s remake. No word on what her role will be in the film, but it’s going to be very interesting to see what they do with her.

After doing a bit more digging around, we found out her character name will be called Anke, which has no relation to the original characters. Could she be part of the witch coven? That would be cool to see.

“SUSPIRIA follows Susie 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 Susie 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.”

Jessica Harper joins Dakota Johnson, Tilda Swinton, Chloë Grace Moretz, and Mia Goth.

David Kajganich is penning the script based on the original written by Dario Argento and Daria Nicolodi. Shooting on Suspiria has already started in Italy this week.
