It's been announced that Thom Yorke of Radiohead is scoring his first feature film, Suspira. It's a remake of Dario Argento's 1977 Italian horror film of the same name. Luca Guadgnino has directed the new version, which stars Chloë Grace Moretz, Dakota Johnson, Tilda Swinton, and Jessica Harper (the star of the 1977 original). The film has been shot and is currently in post-production. No release date has been announced as of yet.

Guadgnino had this to say about Yorke in a press release: "Thom's art transcends the contemporary. To have the privilege of his music and sound for Suspiria is a dream come true. The depth of his creation and artistic vision is so unique that our Suspiria will sound groundbreaking and will deeply resonate with viewers. 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."

Producers Marco Morabito and Brad Fischer also had this to say: "Thom Yorke has composed and performed some of the most iconic and transformative music in modern culture. To have him lend his talent to Suspiria is an extraordinary gift, both to us as filmmakers and to audiences, who have a remarkable, terrifying and emotionally stirring experience in store for them."

The press release describes the plot of Suspiria as such: "Susie Bannion, a young American woman, travels to the prestigious Markos Tanz Company in Berlin in the year 1977. She arrives just as one of the Company's members, Patricia, has disappeared under mysterious circumstances. As Susie makes extraordinary progress under the guidance of Madame Blanc, the Company's revolutionary artistic director, she befriends another dancer, Sara, who shares her suspicions that the Matrons, and the Company itself, may be harboring a dark and menacing secret."
