David Gordon Green's Suspiria Remake to Shoot in 2010
09.13.09 by Ryan
David Gordon Green's career as a director has traveled through a variety of genres, starting in indie fare like All the Real Girls and Snow Angels before finding box office success with the stoner comedy Pineapple Express. Green's adding another genre to his resume with the upcoming horror thriller Freaks of the Heartland and a remake of Dario Argento's horror classic, Suspiria.
Green has been working on Suspiria for some time now, but, as Variety reports, shooting will finally begin in 2010. Green excitedly described the movie to ReelzChannel over a year ago:
It's great. You just have to see it. [I'm going for] the vivid technicolor achievement of The Red Shoes with the intensity and fear and anxiety of The Silence of the Lambs.
Natalie Portman has been rumored for the lead, but while no confirmation has been made, Portman is currently shooting the comedy fantasy Your Highness with Green and her production company is producing Suspiria, so chances are good that Portman will don some ballet slippers and join one of the creepiest dance academies ever.
