Seriously David Gordon Green, when the Hell are you going to understand that NO ONE wants a remake of Dario Argento’s masterpiece Suspiria. You can babble on all you want about how much you love the film, but that doesn’t excuse planning to remake one of the greatest horror films ever made.
You simply cannot remake Suspiria, its too good, to classical and too unique, so for Gods sake just leave it alone!
However, after talk of a TV series earlier this year, it now sounds like Green is back to working on his remake, although he is now not directing.
Green joined William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold of the Crave B-Movies Podcast where he revealed he’s looking to have someone else direct.
“I’m actually hopeful that it’s happening with a great Italian director that I had breakfast with last week,”
So he’s basically saying that the remake is still alive and well, and a new director is being sought.
Green also opened up about his plans for the remake:
“That would have been the shit,” Green says. “I wrote it with my sound designer. I love Argento’s film and we wrote a very faithful, extremely elegant opera, basically of [Suspiria]. I don’t mean musical opera, but it would be incredibly heightened music, and heightened and very operatic and elegant sets. Isabelle Huppert was going to be in it [and] Janet McTeer. We had an amazing cast of elegance and prestige that we were engineering for it.”
“But, at the heart of it,” Green continues, “I wanted it to be a horror film. And a horror movie, at the time when we were modeling that movie, meant you’re making Saw and Paranormal [Activity]. You were making these down and dirty, very gory, very economical movies. So the economic model for a horror movie was not where I wanted it to be to make a $20 million elegant movie from a guy who was an unproven horror director, you know?”
No I don’t know, now please PLEASE just forget the idea of this ridiculous remake and move on.
