Suspiria remake?

Just as the legendary and influential 1977 horror flick SUSPIRIA is about to celebrate its 30th anniversary at the Cannes Film Festival comes word that an English-language remake is in the works. David Gordon Green (ALL THE REAL GIRLS) is in talks to direct the film from a script by Scott Heim (MYSTERIOUS SKIN). For the uninitiated, Dario Argento's SUSPIRIA is a horror classic and follows a young girl who travels to Germany to study ballet. Upon her arrival she witnesses a number of mysterious deaths and begins to suspect all is not as it seems as her new academy. But don't just take my word for it - horror guru Arrow in the Head gives it 4 stars and Entertainment Weekly put it at #18 on their list of the scariest movies of all time. Green is currently finishing up the Seth Rogen/James Franco comedy THE PINEAPPLE EXPRESS and, if a deal is reached, could make SUSPIRIA his next film. So: a SUSPIRIA remake a good idea or tarnishing a legend?

Extra Tidbit: Argento has spoken out in the past against attempts to remake SUSPIRIA.
