Variety is reporting that upstart production house First Sun has acquired the rights to remake Dario Argentoís classic 1977 Suspiria for modern audiences. First Sun is a conglomeration of director Luca Guadagnino, fashion designer Silvia Venturini and a slew of producers.
"Suspiria has a unique style that we want to reinvent for today's generation," director Guadagnino told the trade. "We intend to create a concept that will encompass cinema, videogames, fashion and music and that revives the original for those who did not experience it. The Gothic resurgence is very strong around the world at the moment ... and we feel that a new version of Suspiria will fit very well."
