Chloë Grace Moretz is emerging as the go-to star for horror remakes. After headlining 2010’s “Let Me In” and 2013’s “Carrie,” the actress will soon appear in a remake of “Suspiria” directed by Luca Guadagnino, according to Variety. Dakota Johnson and Tilda Swinton, who appeared in the director’s “A Bigger Splash” this year, will co-star.

Swinton also headlined Guadagnino’s “I Am Love,” making this her third consecutive collaboration with the Italian filmmaker. The original “Suspiria” was, of course, also helmed by an Italian: giallo master Dario Argento, whose other well-known works include “Deep Red,” “Inferno” and “Tenebre,” among many others. Latin for “sighs,” “Suspiria” follows an American ballerina at a prestigious dance academy in Germany who comes to learn that there’s more going on at her new school than pirouettes.

Amazon Studios is both financing and distributing the film worldwide; other releases from the new studio include this summer’s “The Neon Demon” and the upcoming “The Handmaiden,” both of which occupy a similar genre space.
