Yesterday, we covered the news that Isabelle Fuhrman (Orphan, The Hunger Games) was cast in the lead role of the upcoming Suspiria remake. We now have news that an additional four actors have joined the cast.
Isabelle Huppert (I Heart Huckabees), Janet McTeer (The Woman in Black), Michael Nyqvist (Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol) and Antje Traue (Pandorum) will all have roles in the remake, according to Screen Daily. Filming is set to start in September, with David Gordon Green in the directors chair.
While we’re still waiting on additional character and story details, here is what was provided during the official announcement last month:
“Crime Scene Pictures partners Adam Ripp and Rob Paris today announced they will join forces with producers Francesco Melzi d’Eril (I Am Love, Hotel Rwanda) from Memo Films and Luca Guadagnino (I Am Love) under his First Sun film banner to produce and finance SUSPIRIA, based on Dario Argento’s 1977 film of the same name. David Gordon Green (All the Real Girls, Pineapple Express) will direct from a script he penned with Chris Gebert. Rizal Risjad, Silvia Fendi and Philip Elway will executive produce and Lisa Muskat will co-produce. Wild Bunch plans to sell international territories at Cannes in May while CAA represents the U.S. distribution rights.
Scheduled to begin filming in September, SUSPIRIA is a horror film centered on Suzie, a bright and ambitious American student who travels to Europe to attend a world renowned school. After a fellow student is brutally murdered and several other cruel and strange homicides disrupt the once quiet life on campus, Suzie realizes that the academy may be a front for a more menacing organization.”
