Update: We 100% confirmed the story with various sources, although, Natalie’s publicist is reporting otherwise and ensures us that nothing is signed and/or confirmed. Watch for further updates. We heard some interesting rumblings this afternoon that we are trying desperately to confirm. What we’ve been told – and should be taken strictly as rumor – is that Handsome Charlie Films, which is headed by Natalie Portman (pictured inside) and Annette Savitch, will be producing the remake of Dario Argento’s Suspiria. In addition, word has it Portman will topline the film that David Gordon Green is attached to direct. Green’s PINEAPPLE EXPRESS hits theaters tomorrow. Remember that this is RUMOR until confirmed.
In Dario Argento’s original a young American dancer travels to Europe to join a famous ballet school. As she arrives, the camera turns to another young woman, who appears to be fleeing from the school. She returns to her apartment where she is gruesomely murdered by a hideous creature. Meanwhile, the young American is trying to settle in at the ballet school, but hears strange noises and is troubled by bizarre occurrences. She eventually discovers that the school is merely a front for a much more sinister organization.
