David Gordon Green's remake of Dario Argento's classic horror film Susperia is still moving forward, and he's cast 15-year-old Isabelle Fuhrman in the lead role. Fuhrman played the creepy ass little girl in the horror thriller Orphan, and had a supporting role in The Hunger Games.
Chris Gebert and Green wrote the script that tells the story of a young American student who travels to Europe to attend a world renowned dance school. After a series of brutal murders, she learns that the academy is a front for something way more sinister than education... a coven of evil witches.
I love the original film, it's full of creepy psychedelic music, sound and imagery. This is one of those movies that I watch every Halloween. I hope Green can pull off a decent remake, but it's hard to see how it can be any better than what's already been done. It will be interesting to see what Green does with the material and how he makes it his own.
Production is scheduled to start in September. What do you think about Fuhrman taking on the lead role in the movie?
