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.
