‘Suspiria’ Remake In Full-On Casting Mode, Adds Additional Names

Yesterday we reported that Isabelle Fuhrman (Orphan, The Hunger Games) had been cast in David Gordon Green’s Suspiria. The film, a remake of Dario Argento’s classic, is clearly gearing up in a big way and has added several other names to the cast.

Isabelle Huppert (The Piano Teacher, I Heart Huckabees), two-time Academy Award-nominee Janet McTeer (Albert Nobbs; The Woman in Black), Michael Nyqvist (MI:4 Ghost Protocol; Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) and Antje Traue (Superman: Man of Steel) have joined the cast. Clearly we’re talking about a movie with a higher pedigree than The Sitter. It’s important to remember that Green is a supremely talented guy who doesn’t just make stoner comedies.

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.

    Well folks…I’ll tell ya….In order to even remotely begin to even out the balance of the horror universe–“The Lords of Salem” better kick some SERIOUS ass!

    On one hand, Green made Your Highness and The Sitter. On the other hand, his early films were renowned for having incredible cinematrography. On the other other hand, Suspiria doesn’t need a remake but on the other other other hand, the remake is pulling in some interesting actors and actresses. All in all, this might end up being worth a watch.

    This film BETTER have the original score included in it composed by Goblin. It won’t be the same without it. Maybe they can re-record it for the new film. HINT HINT.
