David Gordon Green's (Pineapple Express) remake of Dario Argento's 1977 horror classic, Suspiria, has begun to gain some steam. Deadline reports that the long-planned project has been started searching for the actress to take on the role of Suzie in the film.
Chris Gebert and Gordon Green penned the script about "a young American student who travels to Europe to attend a world renowned school. After a series of brutal murders, she learns that the academy is a front for something way more sinister than education."
Crime Scene Pictures, and the team that brought Hotel Rwanda and I Am Love are producing the remake. They are currently in post production on another remake, Gambit, as well as preproduction on the Joe Lynch-directed Kate Hudson-starrer Everly.
I finally watched the original last year at the recommendation of Venkman, and was haunted by the eerie music and imagery for days. The original is a true horror classic and I am interested to see how this project turns out.
Do you think David Gordon Green can do a good job of directing this film?
