Amazon Studios released the first look at Luca Guadagnino‘s upcoming film, “Suspiria.”
The film is a remake of Dario Argento‘s 1977 horror classic of the same name.
The IMDb synopsis for “Suspiria” reads:
A darkness swirls at a world-renowned dance company, one that will engulf the troupe’s artistic director, an ambitious young dancer, and a grieving psychotherapist. Some will succumb. Others will wake up.
Tilda Swinton stars as the director, Madame Blanc. After winning an Academy Award for “Michael Clayton” in 2006, she went on to star in films like “We Need to Talk About Kevin,” “Snowpiercer,” and “Doctor Strange.”
Dakota Johnson is the young dancer, Susie Bannion. Johnson is best known for her work in the “Fifty Shades” franchise. However, for this project, she reunites with Guadagnino, with whom she previously worked on “A Bigger Splash” in 2015.
Lutz Ebersdorf stars as the psychotherapist, Dr. Josef Klemperer. According to his biography, besides a short time in a theatre troupe in the 1960s, Ebersdorf has no significant acting experience and has, in fact, spent his career as a practicing psychiatrist. Although there were also rumors swirling that Ebersdorf is, in fact, Tilda Swinton under heavy prosthetics and makeup. Director Guadagnino insists those are just rumors, however.
“Suspiria” also stars Chloë Grace Moretz, Mia Goth, Jessica Harper, and more.
Luca Guadagnino has worked in short films, documentaries, and features. He will also be directing a sequel to last year’s Oscar nominated “Call Me By Your Name.”
The director reunites with David Kajganich, who adapted the screenplay from the earlier film. The two previously worked together on “A Bigger Splash.”
Amazon Studios is distributing “Suspiria,” which will be in theaters on November 2.
