suspiria sequel

Suspiria was Luca Guadagnino‘s unhinged horror masterpiece, a Cold War allegory that went off the rails in the most glorious and debauched fashion. And it would have only been the beginning. Guadagnino revealed that he originally intended Suspiria to be the first part of a story, with a planned sequel that would have been even more off the walls than the film were Dakota Johnson rips open her chest and summons a demonic incarnation of Death. But sadly, it’s a Suspiria sequel we’ll never see, due to the first film’s poor box office performance.

scarface remake

Luca Guadagnino doesn’t play by the rulebook with his remakes. The Italian director behind Call Me By Your Name put his own spin on Dario Argento’s giallo classic Suspiria, with a much moodier, much slower take that set itself apart from the 1977 original. So you can probably count on Guadagnino to take his own liberties with the Scarface remake. But in an update on his currently in-development remake, Guadagnino teased that his Scarface may not be as different as we would think.

While the ’32 Scarface was set in the 1920s, and the ’83 Scarface took place in 1980, Guadagnino says his Scarface is going to be “very timely.”
