Greetings my fellow Bidites! I have always enjoyed Dario Argento's Immortal clasc "Suspiria" and with the talk of a remake,
I am not so sure how to take it. Those kind of topics can always be a 50/50 type of deal. Horrorbid has the scoop for you all.David Gordon Green (PINEAPPLE EXPRESS, YOUR HIGHNESS) was attached to direct the Suspiria remake and he even expressed interest in doing it with Natalie Portman starring.
So where is it? Well it seems that the rights to the film are caught up in a bunch of legal mumbo-jumbo.
According to IndieWire.com, the Suspiria remake “which seemingly had its funding and was set to shoot until things went quiet,” is completely caught up in the legal system:
“Suspiria is caught up in legal crap so who knows what will ever happen to that,” Green 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.”
Like I mentioned before my fellow lovers of horror, with this being such a dear movie to me, I'm very on the fence of this concept. On one hand I really think that with the correct team, a Suspiria remake has the chance to be successful. Such a scary story there to be worked with. On the other hand I really hope that it isn't a rushed thing just to make the all mighty dollar which in turn tarnishes the name of clasc film.
What do you think Bidites? I would love to hear your thoughts on this topic. Good or bad, your opinions are always welcome.Source- AnythingHorror.com
