David Gordon Green’s ‘Suspiria’ Shoots This Year

suspiria remake
His stock may have fallen in recent years, but Italian director Dario Argento’s place in horror movie history is assured thanks to Suspiria perhaps more than any other of his other corpse-strewn offerings. A remake has been on the cards for a few years now, with Pineapple Express director David Gordon Green set to direct. And the latest word is that cameras will roll on this new Suspiria in September.

With neither Your Highness nor The Sitter exactly turning out to be unqualified successes, David Gordon Green is turning his back on the comedies for at least one movie, as he is finally given opportunity to film the Suspiria remake he has scripted with Chris Gebert.

Gebert is a name which might not be immediately familiar, but he is a long-time Green collaborator, having worked as sound mixer on his movies since the days of the director’s critical breakthrough, George Washington. And the sound mixer-as-co-scripter setup makes a particular kinda sense when you consider how important a component the soundtrack of the original Suspiria is to its success.

Argento’s Suspiria centres on an American girl (played by Phantom of the Paradise starlet Jessica Harper), who learns that the prestigious European dance school she is enrolled at is a front for a murderous coven of witches. No word as yet on who Green might want for his lead, but distribution rights for his Suspiria will be up for grabs at May’s Cannes Film Festival.

      Yeah, except for the lack of witches, barbed wire, a gloved killer, intense gore, a pulsating soundtrack from Goblin, brightly colored lights, etc., etc., etc. BLACK SWAN was exactly the same.

        I’ll bet you this version doesn’t have intense gore, a pulsating soundtrack from Goblin and very little in the way of brightly coloured lights or barbed wire. It’ll be set in a creepy ballet school though.

          I’m with yo Black Swan was like a an Argento movie. This looks worse and worse. Suspiria is built almost entirely out of style, I bet they do it all teened up with high school witches or something’
          I actually think Harry potter and the Chamber of secrets has a few nods at Suspirias, The secret rums, the house founders representing different kinds of magic, They both have scenes where everyone is moved to the main hall and that thing about snakes.
