David Gordon Green wants to remake SUSPIRIA next

Who else would you want remaking one of the high watermarks in horror history than the guy who just directed YOUR HIGHNESS? David Gordon Green is determined to remake the Dario Argento surreal classic SUSPIRIA, but hopefully it will never come to pass.

Regardless of whether or not Natalie Portman was once in talks to join the cast and attend the fictional ballet school of SUSPIRIA, or if some feel the original needs an update, it's a wholly unnecessary remake and one that should never get the greenlight. The original Argento film is a work of art - a horror film that becomes so abstract that it transforms a death scene into a surrealistic nightmare and elevates a typical witch story into psychedelic opera.

“It’s actually very faithful," claims Green. "I’m gonna put my spin on it, but in terms of a pitch, it’s going to remain quite faithful to [the original].” Then why remake it at all? Just put a pair of 3-D glasses on and watch the original...it'll feel brand new. Thankfully, Natalie Portman decided to dance her way into BLACK SWAN instead of doing something this unoriginal, and she ended up winning an Oscar for her decision.

Green will apparently cast unknowns for the film and says the remake won't be like a typical horror movie, but is that really enough of a reason to put this film on the list of most-anticipated amongst horror fans?
