Which Hunger Games actress is the lead in David Gordon Green's remake of Suspiria?

The remake of SUSPIRIA that David Gordon Green has been trying to make for five years was finally greenlit last month and now it has found it's star.

Isabelle Fuhrman, the creepy little girl from ORPHAN and costar of THE HUNGER GAMES, will don the ballet slippers once worn by Jessica Harper. Fuhrman is only 15 years old but has definitely shed the creepy kid factor and looks like she has the body type to play a ballerina.

Also joining the cast are Isabelle Huppert (THE PIANO TEACHER), two-time Academy Award-nominee Janet McTeer (ALBERT NOBBS, THE WOMAN IN BLACK), Michael Nyqvist (MISSION IMPOSSIBLE: GHOST PROTOCOL) and Antje Traue (SUPERMAN: THE MAN OF STEEL).

Plot: Based on Dario Argento’s 1977 film of the same name, SUSPIRIA centers on Suzie (Isabelle Fuhrman), 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.

I am still willing to give Green a chance with this one. I keep the original film sacred and recommend it to everyone looking for a unique horror movie. With the junk that passes for quality horror these days, even a half assed remake of SUSPIRIA would be a welcome change.

Filming begins in September and no release date is currently set.

She is a great little actress, and loved Orphan. Glad to read that she's going to get some more work.

She was suprisingly impressive in "Orphan", and really elevated what would have been a throwaway horror B-movie. As for the end result, I'm sure it will turn out better than what Argento is churning out these days. Case in point: [link] (shudders)

Cool deal. Good choice for the lead and I'm glad Green is doing something besides stoner comedies again. Love the original BTW.

I'm excited Fuhrman got the part. She's such a talented actress at such a young age! I may be in the minority but I didn't think Suspiria was all that great. The score annoyed the hell out of me too because it was so intrusive and repetitive. I believe scores should mostly stay in the background to support the film, not to bang people on the head over and over again to remind them that it's there. Also, the ending is quite lame. I have high hopes for the remake though.

Fuhrman was excellent in 'Orphan', and this is excellent casting. 'Suspiria' is my favorite horror film, and I've been nervous about a remake since it was first announced forever ago. With gaining the rights to Goblin's score, and a solid leading actress is making me think they're taking great care with this. As they should.
