As I continue to try and get Dario Argento’s classic on Blu-ray (why is it so hard?!), Isabelle Fuhrman (pictured inside), who parlayed her starring turn in Orphan into a key supporting role in The Hunger Games, has landed the lead in David Gordon Green’s remake of Suspiria, says Variety.
Argento’s 1977 horror pic followed Suzie, a young girl who travels to Europe to attend a world-renowned school, only to learn that the academy is a front for a coven of witches.
Green is directing from a script he co-wrote with Chris Gebert. Crime Scene Pictures principals Adam Ripp and Rob Paris are producing with Francesco Melzi d’Eril of Memo Films and I Am Love helmer Luca Guadagnino of First Sun.
Production will start in September.
