Ever since director David Gordon Green was out promoting his feature film Pineapple Express, he’s been talking about his intentions to eventually remake SUSPIRIA, long considered Dario Argento’s masterpiece. And now, several years later, the project finally seems to be picking up steam with principle photography scheduled to begin in September of this year. And now we know who will be filling in the role originated by Jessica Harper. It’s Isabelle Fuhrman from the underrated gem ORPHAN and more recently THE HUNGER GAMES. For an actress so young, she’s already shown tremendous promise from her previous work, and she definitely has a similar look & beauty that Harper possessed in the original.
Based on Dario Argento’s 1977 film of the same name, SUSPIRIA is written by David Gordon Green and Chris Gebert and centers on Suzie (Fuhrman), a bright and ambitious American student who travels to Europe to attend a world renowned school. After a fellow student is brutally murdered and several other cruel and strange homicides disrupt the once quiet life on campus, Suzie realizes that the academy may be a front for a more menacing organization.
Isabelle Huppert (Amour, The Piano Teacher), Janet McTeer (Albert Nobbs, The Woman in Black), Michael Nyqvist (Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and Antje Traue (Man of Steel) round out the remainder of the cast.
