We were kind of confused when photos of Tilda Swinton (in crazy old age makeup!) emerged from the Suspiria set this month, because we were pretty sure filming had already wrapped earlier this year. As it turns out, director Luca Guadagnino shot in Italy at the tail end of last year and just finished the film this month in Berlin; he took a break in January due to another obligation.
In other words, Amazon Studios’ Suspiria remake is now completely shot, and Guadagnino is in post on the film. Speaking with Indiewire, who note that the movie could be hitting theaters as early as this year, the Italian filmmaker dug a bit into his vision for Dario Argento’s horror classic, revealing that the lush color palette from Argento’s film will not be present in his movie.
It’s a film about guilt and motherhood. It has no primary colors in its color palette, unlike the original. It will be cold, evil and really dark.
Chloe Grace-Moretz, Dakota Johnson, Tilda Swinton and Mia Goth star.
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.
