This past September we reported that Italian filmmaker Luca Guadagnino was set to remake Dario Aregento’s 1977 film Supiria. Film critic Alex Heller-Nicholas revealed over a series of tweets earlier this week about his interview with Guadagnino, revealing several new pieces of information about the remake, which is set to open in theaters in 2017, including that Fifty Shades of Grey’s Dakota Johnson will be starring along side talented actress Tilda Swinton (Constantine, The Chronicles of Narnia).
It was also revealed by Guadagnino that the film will be set in Berlin in 1977. And that the film will be “…about the mother and the concept of motherhood and about the uncompromising force of motherhood. It’s going to be about finding your inner voice – the title is very evocative on theses grounds.”
In Argento’s original a young ballet dancer travels to a prestigious dance academy in Europe, only to discover it a front for something far more sinister and supernatural amidst a series of increasingly grisly murders.
