Dario Argento’s masterpiece, Suspiria, is one of horrors finest moments, and I am so pleased the ridiculous idea for a remake is no longer happening.
However, there will be a sort of new version of the film as a TV series has just been announced, with Argento’s blessing.
Per Screen Daily:
Suspiria De Profundis, is inspired by the 19th century English writer Thomas De Quincey’s eponymous book, which was made into the classic Italian horror film Suspiria in 1977 by Dario Argento. Argento will serve as the series’ artistic supervisor.
Suspiria De Profundis will be an English-language period horror series in which the author De Quincey is the lead character. Styled as a new Sherlock Holmes, the story will explore psychological fantasies of evil and attempt to solve fearful mysteries. It will be set in London and Rome at the turn of the 20th century.
Argento said: “The extraordinary freedom of expression and creativity that modern TV drama now offers and the interest that the public has shown towards it have encouraged me to take a stab at this new genre.”
Suspiria will have twelve fifty minute episodes.
