Every couple of years, Philippe Garrel turns out a black-and-white tales of love and (in)fidelity among Parisian intellectuals. His detractors contend that he always makes the same film; his defenders say that’s the point. Like seeing a singer play two shows, the pleasures are found in subtle changes and rearrangements, noticing what they emphasize in this set as opposed to the last. In any case, “Lover for a Day” is unlikely to change anyone’s perspective.
There is one major departure: Instead of casting his son Louis Garrel, who either starred in or narrated his father’s previous five features, the director has gone with his daughter, Esther Garrel (of the Sundance sensation “Call Me By Your Name”). She stars as Jeanne, a young student experiencing her first pangs of heartbreak. Kicked out by her now ex and with nowhere to go, Jeanne ends up moving in with her father, »

Well this already sounds amazing! Word from Deadline this weekend has suggested that Academy Award Nominees Benedict Cumberbatch (Doctor Strange, The Imitation Game) and Jake Gyllenhaal (Okja, Nocturnal Animals) are set to headline the new film from acclaimed director Luca Guadagnino (A Bigger Splash).
The new thriller has been written by Steven Knight, the screenwriter behind Allied and hit BBC show Peaky Blinders, and is set to start filming sometime in early 2018 with StudioCanal financing the film. The script reportedly concerns two friends, “one a business titan and the other a journalist”, and it is also said to include a “strong female lead” that is still to be cast.
It has already been a busy year for the acclaimed director: earlier this year, his latest film Call Me By Your Name, debuted to critical acclaim at this year’s Sundance Film Festival as well the Berlin Film Festival, »

Luca Guadagnino doesn’t know the word “stop.” The filmmaker might be at the busiest point of his career, having just hit Sundance with “Call Me By Your Name” (which is already earning Oscar buzz), and currently in post-production on his remake of “Suspiria.” But if you thought he might decide to perhaps take a nap once that project is done, guess again.

Luca Guadagnino is on board to helm an as-of-yet-untitled thriller for Studiocanal, according to Deadline. Sources tell the publication that Academy Award nominees Benedict Cumberbatch and Jake Gyllenhaal are being tapped to star in the film, which is being penned by Steven Knight (“Eastern Promises”).

It’s been a whirlwind 24 hours for writer-director Steven Knight.
Best known as the creator of hit period drama Peaky Blinders, Knight is angling Serenity, a supernatural drama headed up by Matthew McConaughey and Anne Hathaway, to be his next directorial effort, and news from Cannes reveals that the project is on the verge of landing Uma Thurman. But Steven Knight has another feature film incubating in the formative stages of development, and Deadline brings word today that the as-yet-untitled thriller is now eyeing Benedict Cumberbatch and Jake Gyllenhaal.
Negotiations are ongoing, but the fact that Knight’s script has attracted two Oscar-nominees is an early vote of confidence in and of itself. Italian helmer Luca Guadagnino is attached to direct the nebulous feature, which largely centers on two friends – Cumberbatch and Gyllenhaal, presumably – one a “business titan and the other a journalist.” Barring the fact that Steven Knight’s »

The film follows a financial reporter (Gyllenhaal) who travels to Rio de Janeiro to visit a wealthy friend (Cumberbatch), only to get sucked into a plot to fake his friend’s death.

Thom Yorke will compose the score for upcoming remake of Dario Argento's 1977 cult favorite Suspiria. Italian director Luca Guadagnino (Call Me By Your Name, I Am Love) will direct the new version of the horror classic. These are going to be some mighty big shoes to fill for Yorke and Guadagnino as the score and lighting, respectively are arguably two of the most iconic features of the original Suspiria. Guadagnino has teased that he will be taking a different approach to the coloring, making it "cold, evil, and really dark." So what is Yorke's score going to sound like?
Yorke is best known for his work as the lead singer/multi-instrumentalist from Radiohead, in addition to his solo work and Atoms for Peace. He will be scoring the remake on his own. Though only speculation, the sounds of Yorke's Prophet 08 synthesizer will fit the bill perfectly. But Yorke is »

The reimagining of Dario Argento’s cult horror classic Suspiria, which is to be helmed by Luca Guadagnino, has found its musical muse to work on the score for the film: Radiohead’s very own Thom Yorke.
Yorke is best known as the singer and main songwriter for Radiohead, is diving in on what will be a first in his career. His fellow bandmate Jonny Greenwood has scored films such as There Will be Blood and The Master, and Suspiria will mark a new stage in Yorke’s musical career.
The remake is set in 1977 Berlin and follows a young American woman (Dakota Johnson) who joins a prestigious dance company. She arrives just as one of the members mysteriously disappears and begins to suspect that the dance troupe is harbouring a disturbing secret. Tilda Swinton, Chloë Grace Moretz, Mia Goth and Jessica Harper also star.

It looks like the Suspiria remake is getting a perfect pairing in Radiohead’s Thom Yorke! It has been revealed that the iconic songwriter/musician/frontman will be providing all of the music for the upcoming movie.
Sitting down with Variety, director Luca Guadagnino provided his thoughts on collaborating with the Radiohead frontman:
“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 is considered one of the best horror movies of the ’70s. Specifically, that surreal genre of horror that came out of Italy at the time. »

Radiohead’s Thom Yorke will make his film score debut with the soundtrack for horror remake Suspiria for director Luca Guadagnino, so reports Variety. The horror film, released later this year, is a remake of the classic 1977 Dario Argento movie and stars Tilda Swinton, Dakota Johnson, Mia Goth, Chloë Grace Moretz, Lutz Ebersdorf, and Jessica Harper. More on the Thom Yorke Suspiria news below.
Suspiria follows a young American ballerina who comes to train at a prestigious German dance academy and uncovers the school’s dark and menacing secrets.
Luca 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.

Variety reports that Radiohead's Thom Yorke will score Luca Guadagnino’s Suspiria remake. The 1977 original, of course, was directed by Italian master Dario Argento, and it's one of the most beautiful horror films ever made, in no small part due to its lighting and palette. Argento's film is also known for its dreamily haunting score, which was composed by Italian prog rock band Goblin.
Yorke will have to follow up on Goblin's ghostly soundtrack for the remake, but his past work with Radiohead would indicate that he's up to the task. In fact, the last three of the band's efforts, In Rainbows, The King Of Limbs, and A Moon Shaped Pool »
I will be the first to admit that I am not as big a Dario Argento devotee as others within the ScreenAnarchy fold so the news of the Suspiria remake was met more passive aggressively than anything. I appreciate some of his work so I can appreciate why some are more devoted to the Italian cult filmmaker than I. However, I am a big Radiohead fan so perhaps this news from Variety that Radiohead's Thom Yorke is going to score the remake may soften the blow for our more die heard brethren and sistren. The film is a reimagining of Dario Argento’s cult classic. The new version of the horror film is directed by Luca Guadagnino, the critically acclaimed filmmaker behind “Call Me...

Thom Yorke will lend his signature musical style to the eerie setting of a mysterious ballet school, as it has been announced that the Radiohead frontman will score the new take on Dario Argento's Suspiria.
Variety reports the news of Yorke coming on board the reimagining to compose the film's score—the first time he will undertake such an endeavor. The original Suspiria featured haunting music by Argento and Goblin, so Yorke certainly has a high bar to meet with the new movie's music.
Currently in post-production, the new Suspiria stars Tilda Swinton, Dakota Johnson, Mia Goth, Chloë Grace Moretz, and the original film's star, Jessica Harper. Luca Guadagnino directed the film from a screenplay by David Kajganich, adapted from the original film's script that was penned by Argento and Daria Nicolodi.
The new Suspiria takes place at a Berlin ballet school circa 1977 (the year the original film came out »

He’s no Goblin, and we’re not just defending the guy’s appearance: It’s been announced that Radiohead frontman and sentient conception of “ennui” Thom Yorke has been hired to score the upcoming remake of Dario Argento’s Italian horror classic Suspiria. The film, which moved from “ghastly idea” to “let’s give it a shot” when I Am Love director Luca Guadagnino and his A Bigger Splash cast (Tilda Swinton, Ralph Fiennes, Dakota Johnson, Matthias Schoenaerts) signed on to the project, is about a young American woman who travels to 1977 Berlin to join a dance company, only to suspect it may be hiding a dark secret. In that respect, it’s the perfect project for Yorke, who already looks as though he’d like to time travel to 1977 Berlin and lounge around the back room of a languid salon, giving readings of Thus Spoke Zarathustra »
