Continuing the constant stream of remake news this week, we have a status update on the remake of Suspiria. David Gordon Green has been talking about filming a remake of Suspiria for a while now, but as more time passed, we thought it was less likely to see the light of day. According to a recent interview with David Gordon Green, he's still moving forward with the project:

On the topic of whether or not Black Swan helped or hurt a Suspiria remake, David Gordon Green mentions that it's helping him to sell the movie:

"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."
