David Gordon Green to direct the remake of SUSPIRA

This sort of breaks our hearts. Suspira is a great flick from the legendary director, Dario Argento and was made back in 1977. The remake promises to deliver what the original did but we shall see. Here is the news about the production and director for the scheduled remake.


Deadline is reporting that the film will be directed by Pineapple Express helmer David Gordon Green from a script he wrote with Chris Gebert.

Synopsis: The search is on for Suzie, the young protagonist who travels to Europe to attend a world renowned school. After a series of brutal murders, the young American student learns that the academy is a front for something way more sinister than education. The original had a surreal, psychedelic tone that involved the supernatural, witches and a whole lotta blood.


The remake is backed Crime Scene Pictures, whose partners Adam Ripp and Rob Paris are joining forces with producers Francesco Melzi d’Eril (Hotel Rwanda) from Memo Films and Luca Guadagnino (I Am Love) under his First Sun film banner to produce and finance the remake. Rizal Risjad, Silvia Fendi and Philip Elway will executive produce and Lisa Muskat will co-produce. Wild Bunchwill sell foreign at Cannes in May and CAA will make the domestic distribution deal. Production begins in September.

“We love the style and energy of the original film – and David’s script brilliantly updates the world, presenting a rare opportunity to create an elegant, classic horror film,” Crime Scene partners Ripp and Paris said in a statement.
