Out promoting Your Highness, director David Gordon Green told Indiewire that next on his agenda could be the long-gestured remake of Dario Argento’s Suspiria.
“I’m hopefully going to get into a horror film, [`Suspiria’] next. That’s the goal,” Green said about lining up the remake of the Dario Argento psych-horror classic as his next feature. “It’s an idea that came to me three years ago…That was an enlightening process. [Our `Suspiria’] doesn’t follow the trend of the traditional horror movies of late, so it’s a leap of faith, financially.” He also says that there won’t be many key differences, stating, “It’s actually very faithful. I’m gonna put my spin on it, but in terms of a pitch, it’s going to remain quite faithful to [the original].”
Natalie Portman was once in talks, but (smartly) opted to do Black Swan instead. The new cast will be unknowns: “I want an unknown cast…My version isn’t necessarily about ballet, it’s more of an all-girls boarding school… I don’t think it will have names.”
In the original ’77 flick, a newcomer to a fancy ballet academy gradually comes to realize that the staff of the school are actually a coven of witches bent on chaos and destruction.
