Suspiria Reboot Wraps Filming; Heading to European Film Market

The Luca Guadagnino remake of Dario Argneto’s 1977 horror classic Suspiria is being handled with care by the passionate Italian director, or so it seems. Attempting to give horror fans a fresh new take on such an iconic horror masterpiece is a risk, that’s just my feeling right now, but I could be proved wrong. The Suspiria reboot does have a very impressive cast, so my fingers are crossed that it turns out to be a respectful modern day version of the film.

As many of you may already know, Suspiria has wrapped filming, and is heading to European Film Market with FilmNation aboard for international sales, says Deadline. Amazon Studios picked up the project last year for worldwide distribution rights and is financing the production.

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.

David Kajganich wrote the script based on the original written by Dario Argento and Daria Nicolodi.

Chloe Grace-Moretz, Tilda Swinton, Jessica Harper, Dakota Johnson, and Mia Goth star.
