Orphan star Isabelle Fuhrman lands lead role in Suspiria remake!

May. 15, 2012by: Jake Dee

She seems kind of young, but if ORPHAN taught us anything, Isabelle Fuhrman is one precocious little bugger!

And for that, director David Gordon Green has decided to put his faith in Fuhrman by giving her the lead role in the long-gestating SUSPIRIA remake. The role was originated in 1977 by Jessica Harper, who was 28 at the time. Fuhrman, seen right, is merely 15. Question then becomes, how young does Green skew the material? Will he pander to a PG-13 audience? Troublesome thought!

As any true horror head knows, Dario Argento's SUSPIRIA is one of the landmarks of Italian splatter cinema. Natalie Portman was long attached to star in the redo, but her Oscar winning turn for BLACK SWAN pretty much shot that horse in the face. So here comes Fuhrman, who again, shows tremendous screen poise for her age. Will she play her own age or older, that's the question.

To be co-written with Green by Chris Gebert, here's how the original set up:

A newcomer to a fancy ballet academy gradually comes to realize that the staff of the school are actually a coven of witches bent on chaos and destruction.

Okay, so let's take a pulse. Are you still pissed SUSPIRIA is being remade to being with? Are you in favor of Fuhrman landing the lead? If not Fuhrman, who would be ideal?

Extra Tidbit: Fuhrman last appeared in THE HUNGER GAMES, alongside Jennifer Lawrence (above).

These things(re-makes)are inevitable , so we're going to have to suck it up , and move along . That being said , Isabelle Fuhrman is an excellent choice for Susie Banyan .

I have yet to see an Argento film that didn't bore the living shit out of me. Why this film receive such high praise I will never understand.

I'm against a Suspiria remake, but this actress is VERY talented, so I am behind her casting :)

Fun fact: in Suspiria, the cast was originally supposed to be 12 year old girls (imagine how dark that movie would be), so I wonder if they are going in that direction with younger girls?

Ballerinas in their prime are very young. Even though the actress was 28 she was more than likely playing much much younger.

Sweet

She'll do great. She was awesome in Orphan and memorable in Hunger Games. Thought I'd rather NOT have a Suspiria remake, at least the lead role went to the right girl.
