Director David Gordon Green (PINEAPPLE EXPRESS) has been working on his SUSPIRIA remake for 36 years. Now, given that the original came out in 1977 I am not sure how that works out on a timeline. Point is, he’s been talking about this pretty much since he got into the biz.
During an interview for THE SITTER, Green talked about how Darren Aronofsky’s THE BLACK SWAN has helped his remake of Dario Argento’s classic.
“No, that adds to it. That means there’s an audience for prestige in genre, and to me, that’s exciting. We’re really close to getting that movie made if I can get over a couple more budgetary hurdles I think I can pull it off. My version doesn’t really have any similarities to Black Swan, but it proves to the marketplace that you can take a great risk and you can have something that has great artistic ambition, but also has incredible commercial appeal.”
All aboard the remake train…
SEE YOU ON FORTY DEUCE,
