Carrie star Chloë Grace Moretz has joined the cast of Luca Guadagnino’s Suspiria remake, according to Variety. She joins the already confirmed cast of Tilda Swinton, Mia Goth, and Dakota Johnson. The film is being produced and distributed by Amazon Studios.
As John Squires points out below, Grace Moretz has become a scream queen for horror remakes. On top of Carrie and now Suspiria, she was in The Eye, Let Me In, and The Amityville Horror.
In the 1977 original, “In a stormy night, the American dancer Suzy Bannion arrives in Freiburg coming from New York to join a famous and expensive ballet school for a three years training. On the next morning, she is informed by the direction of the school that a student she met leaving the place on the previous night was violently murdered and the police is investigating the crime. She becomes friend of another student, Sara, and she realizes that the house is indeed a coven of evil witches.”
Amityville Horror. The Eye. Let Me In. Carrie. Now Suspiria. Chloe Grace Moretz is officially the 1st true horror remake scream queen.
