Radiohead’s Thom Yorke scoring new ‘Suspiria’ remake starring Tilda Swinton
Dario Argento's 1977 film Suspiria is one of the classics of Italian horror. It also has perhaps the most iconic Italian horror soundtrack of all, courtesy Goblin. The film is being remade by Luca Guadagnino, who made 2009's acclaimed I Am Love among many other films, and Variety reports he's tapped Thom Yorke to score it. Guadgnino told Variety that working with Yorke was “a dream come true,” adding “Our goal is to make a movie that will be a disturbing and transforming experience: for this ambition, we could not find a better partner than Thom.”
The remake, which was co-produced by Amazon Studios, stars Tilda Swinton (who starred in I Am Love) and Dakota Johnson, with much the same plotline as the original: "A young American ballerina comes to train at a prestigious German dance academy and comes to uncover the school's dark and menacing secrets." Jessica Harper, who was in the original Suspiria, is also in the remake. No release date yet. Stay tuned.
