It feels like every year I’m posting some sort of update on the forthcoming Suspiria remake, which is being developed by Natalie Portman’s production company and director Davis Gordon Green. Orphan‘s Isabelle Fuhrman had even been attached to star!
Green, who is at Sundance promoting his pretty funny indie comedy Prince Avalanche, revealed to The Playlist that the project is stuck in a legal limbo it may never free itself from. “Suspiria is caught up in legal crap so who knows what will ever happen to that,” he explained. “That kind of falls into the ‘Confederacy Of Dunces’ category of ‘someday I’d like to make these movies’ that I was once attached to and worked on, but they may never happen.”
This is a chance to cheer for those of you opposed to the redo of Dario Argento’s colorful 1977 masterpiece. Still, it would have been interesting to see what Green’s gaggle of witches would have been like.
