Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke will soundtrack Luca Guadagnino's forthcoming remake of Dario Argento's 1977 giallo cult classic Suspiria.

While there's no release date for the film yet, it stars Dakota Johnson, Chloë Grace Moretz, and Tilda Swinton, and will be Yorke's first feature-length score. Previously, he contributed music to 1998 drama Velvet Goldmine and 2013 documentary The UK Gold. His bandmate, Jonny Greenwood, has frequently collaborated with director Paul Thomas Anderson.

"Thom's art transcends the contemporary. To have the privilege of his music and sound for Suspiria is a dream come true," Guadagnino said in a statement. "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."

Last year, THUMP named Italian prog-rock group Goblin's music for the original Suspiria as one of the best electronic horror movie soundtracks of all-time.
