A film’s score is extremely important. It sets the tone for the entire film. Director Luca Guadgnino is currently working on his Suspiria remake and aims to make it “a disturbing and transforming experience.” Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke will be helping to make that happen by composing the film’s score, a first for the musician, Variety reports.
Written by David Kajganich, based on the 1977 original film from Argento and Daria Nicolodi, the film centers on a young American ballerina who comes to train at a prestigious German dance academy. After a series of gruesome murders take place she slowly unravels the academy’s sinister truth.
Guadgnino’s Superia has an all-star cast that includes Chloë Moretz, Dakota Johnson, Tilda Swinton, Mia Goth, Jessica Harper, Sylvie Testud, Angela Winkler, Ingrid Caven, and Malgorzata Bela.
Frenesy Film Company, First Sun Films, Mythology Entertainment, and Memo Films are producing. James Vanderbilt, Massimiliano, Paul Deason, and Carlo Antonelli serve as executive producers.
Guadgnino has stated that the new Suspiria, which is now in post-production, will be scarier than the original. Hopefully, we will not have to wait too long to find out. The release date and trailer should be here soon.
As for Thom Yorke, Radiohead has a long history of creating great songs. Remember “Creep”, then there’s “Knives Out”, “I Might Be Wrong” and “True Love Waits”, just to name a few.
