Well now this is something else.
Italian filmmaker Luca Guadagnino is helming Amazon Studios’ remake of Dario Argento’s Suspiria, which is apparently not really a remake at all. Star Mia Goth recently told us that it’s a visually stunning love letter to Argento’s film rather than a straight up remake, and from what we gather, all parties involved are intent on doing this one justice. For now, we’re keeping our hopes up.
Starring alongside Goth, Chloe Grace-Moretz, and Dakota Johnson is Tilda Swinton (Doctor Strange), who is apparently playing a character much older than herself in the film. IMDb lists her as Madame Blanc (a character from the original), and some new photos that have just come in from the set show that she’s going to be rocking some pretty serious old-age makeup.
Is there anything Swinton *can’t* do?
A young American ballet dancer travels to a prestigious dance academy in Europe, only to discover it is something far more sinister and supernatural. She becomes increasingly terrified after a series of gruesome murders ensue and she slowly unravels the dark history of the academy.
David Kajganich penned the script.
