Dario Argento Signs Off on ‘Susipria’ Redo (Barely)

Two definitely and long waited news come from Marco Morabito, producer of the new Suspiria remake, due to be directed by David Gordon Green. Bad Taste writes that: “He confirmed…David Gordon Green will be the director; Dario Argento finally has agreed to let the rights of the screenplay for the remake, it took nine months to convince the director who in the end accepted because, as Morabito reveals, ‘is by the way convinced that his movie is a masterpiece and can’t be overshadowed’.” He also debunked the recent Marilyn Manson rumors: “No, it’s just a rumor. I read it too on the internet and I don’t know where it comes from! We never even thought about that.” Bring on the witches?
In the original Jessica Harper stars as Suzy Banyon, a young American ballet dancer who arrives at a prestigious European dance academy run by the mysterious Madame Blanc (Joan Bennett) and Miss Tanner (Alida Valli). But when a series of bizarre incidents and horrific crimes turn the school into a waking nightmare of the damned, Suzy must escape the academy’s unspeakable secret of supernatural evil.
