Portman in Suspiria

08.06.2008

Natalie PortmanUPDATE - Portman's rep is denying the report below but Bloody-Disgusting is standing by its story. To be continued...

Those dastardly fiends at "Bloody Disgusting" recently dropped the news that furry musician loving brunette goddess Natalie Portman is looking to produce and topline a remake of Dario Argento's 1977 trippy horror classic SUSPIRIA. She'd presumably be stepping into Jessica Harper's shoes as the new girl to a fancy ballet school who gets a little bit of a culture shock when she realizes the school is really a coven for witches who wanna fuck shit right up. Portman hasn't done a horror film in, well, ever (unless you count STAR WARS…Hello!!) so it'll be interesting to see what she does with this. The film is under PINEAPPLE EXPRESS director David Gordon Green, who apparently wants to show some Marc Forster type versatility. Portman can next be seen in the drama BROTHERS and the anthology film NEW YORK, I LOVE YOU.

Extra Tidbit: Check out Portman in her folk musician boyfriend Devendra Banhart's pretty funny video for "Carmensita" over HERE.

DAMN IT!

I really wish they wouldn't remake Argento films, Suspiria in particular. Oh well, these are the times we live in. Every fucking film and TV show must be remade.

I have to say--first "V For Vendetta", now this, Portman seems to have good taste, and a sort of twisted sensibility when it comes to picking her roles.

She wouldn't sign on if it's gonna be junk?

Suspiria is one of my favorite movies! All the recent remakes are trashy...I dunno how I feel about this...if it's good then I'm happy for it. But does the movie really NEED a remake? It's still SO good. Just Re-Release it! Also, not to be mean but Portman is pushing 30. . . how old were the students supposed to be like 21? It's hard to tell. Well, she looks young anyway!

At the beginning I wasn't for a remake of Suspiria, but I think that Natalie could do some good with it.

I guess we'll see as it develops.

You had me at Portman while not being Star Wars. I'm in.

And I'd say that music video is kinda horror. It freaked me out, anyway.

So far I love everyone involved, but Suspiria should not be remade. What makes it unique and memorable is the direction, and Argento's style cannot and should not be copied - and with a director like David Gordon Green, I'd want something as original as his previous films. I wish they'd just make a ton of theaters to play classic films, rather than remake them. Wouldn't it be awesome if, instead of this, every Cineplex just dedicated one screen to a 35mm print of Argento's Suspiria? THAT would

I think this is a great idea! Portman will be awesome in this and they got a great director. I honestly can't see this being bad.
