7suspiria-30406

The remake to Dario Argento’s classic 1977 thriller Suspiria just won’t die.

Pineapple Express helmer David Gordon Green is now working from a script he wrote with Chris Gebert, with the search now on for Suzie, the young protagonist who travels to Europe to attend a world renowned school. After a series of brutal murders, the young American student learns that the academy is a front for something way more sinister than education. The original had a surreal, psychedelic tone that involved the supernatural, witches and a whole lotta blood.

The fresh news comes via Deadline who reports that the remake is backed by Crime Scene Pictures, whose partners Adam Ripp and Rob Paris are joining forces with producers Francesco Melzi d’Eril (Hotel Rwanda) from Memo Films and Luca Guadagnino (I Am Love) under his First Sun film banner to produce and finance the remake. Rizal Risjad, Silvia Fendi and Philip Elway will executive produce and Lisa Muskat will co-produce. Wild Bunchwill sell foreign at Cannes in May and CAA will make the domestic distribution deal. Production begins in September.

We love the style and energy of the original film – and David’s script brilliantly updates the world, presenting a rare opportunity to create an elegant, classic horror film,” Crime Scene partners Ripp and Paris said in a statement.

    “We love the style and energy of the original film”…If you love it so much then leave it alone! “And David’s script brilliantly updates the world”…Yeah, now the actors are One Tree Hill rejects who stare at their cellphone.

    I’ve seen Suspiria. I know how it ends. Why would I see it again? And I PROMISE you…these guys love the lighting style Argento used? I promise they’ll use the same old washed-out J-horror color scheme…Im getting too angry over a movie. I’ll shut up now

    If you so-called artists loved the style and energy of the original, why don’t you try to write a horror movie ORIGINAL with the feel of Suspiria instead of redoing it!!! I love movies, I love Suspiria and I hate people and I hate this industry full of people hating movies.
