Radiohead's Thom Yorke to score remake of horror classic Suspiria
Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke is to score a feature film for the first time in his career.
Yorke, who is currently on tour with Radiohead promoting their new album A Moon Shaped Pool (which you can preview and purchase on the right-hand side of the page), will score the remake of horror classic Suspiria, once filming finishes in the coming weeks.
The movie will star Dakota Johnson, Mia Goth, Jessica Harper, Tilda Swinton and Chloë Grace Moretz, with Luca Guadagnino, who made acclaimed drama A Bigger Splash, behind the camera.
Speaking about the decision, Guadagnino said: "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."
Suspiria follows a young ballet dancer as she travels to a prestigious dance academy in Berlin in 1977, only to discover it is a front for something far more sinister and supernatural. It was originally a hit for horror star Dario Argento back in 1977.
