Original SUSPIRIA's Jessica Harper Joins the Remake

Whilst there’s certainly plenty of trepidation over the upcoming remake of Dario Argento’s legendary Suspiria, the redo has moved to bring in a familiar face from Argento’s original 1977 movie.

EW is reporting that Jessica Harper has signed on for the retelling of this fan favourite film. In the original, Harper played Susie Bannon. Where Amazon Studios’ remake is concerned, it’s not been revealed at this stage what role she’ll be playing, but she joins a cast that includes Dakota Johnson, Tilda Swinton, Chloe Grace Moretz, and Mia Goth.

Argento’s classic ’77 effort is a classic giallo picture that ranks as one of the very best horrors of all-time amongst many fans and critics. A thrilling murder mystery affair, the plot centres on an American dancer arriving in Germany just as bodies pile up and witches emerge from the shadows.

Luca Guadagnino is on directing duties for this new take on Suspiria, although original helmer Argento has already gone on record to voice his disapproval at one of his most beloved movies being remade.

The Suspiria remake will arrive at a TBC 2017 date.
