It’s been rumored for years that David Gordon Green is working on a remake of Dario Argento‘s classic 70s horror movie Suspiria. Now, in an interview with The Playlist, the director confirms that after he wants the project to be his next movie, after Your Highness and The Sitter. Here’s Green on the long period in which he worked on the script, and on the movie’s relationship to the original film:

“That was an enlightening process. [Our ‘Suspiria’] doesn’t follow the trend of the traditional horror movies of late, so it’s a leap of faith, financially. It’s actually very faithful. I’m gonna put my spin on it, but in terms of a pitch, it’s going to remain quite faithful to [the original].”

Green also acknowledges that Natalie Portman was attached to the project, but isn’t anymore. Suspiria is a horror movie set at an all-girls dancing academy, so the similarities to Black Swan would have been obvious.

Faithfulness is cool, I guess, but why not just watch the original movie? It’s good, and you don’t have to wait for David Gordon Green to make it – it’s ready right now!

Hobo With A Shotgun Aims For Vampires In ‘Dracula 3D’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/hobo-with-a-shotgun-aims-for-vampires-in-dracula-3d/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/hobo-with-a-shotgun-aims-for-vampires-in-dracula-3d/#comments Tue, 22 Feb 2011 01:46:36 +0000 Geoffrey Golden http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=28985 Remember how sucky 'Van Helsing' was? Now that Rutger Hauer ('Hobo With A Shotgun') is taking on the role in 'Dracula 3D', you can stake those bad memories right outta your brain.

Remember how sucky Van Helsing was? Thankfully, we may get to stake those bad memories in the heart, because a new actor is taking on the Van Helsing monster-hunting mission in Dracula 3D: Rutger Hauer (Hobo With A Shotgun, Android Bird Guy from Blade Runner). That sounds like great casting, and not just “great because the actress is totally hot” casting, but actual good casting.

Legendary Italian horror director Dario Argento‘s take on the king of all vampires hasn’t sparked my interest until now, but my SJ colleagues loved Hobo With A Shotgun. So much so, I’m willing to give a movie called Dracula 3D a chance. With vampire movies more numerous than tween girls at a Robert Pattinson Shirtless Charity Car Wash event, if your take on the genre is that “it’s-a totally in-a 3D” (that’s my Dario Argento impression), you might not have much to add.

Still. Hobos. Shotguns. Vampires. Could work. (Collider)
