News Suspiria Remake Without Dario Argento’s involvement? You Must Be Kidding! Published 2 years ago on August 8, 2016 By Nick Bond Share Tweet If the Suspiria remake ignores the original director’s input, I would personally avoided it like the plague out of respect for the Italian horror legend. I mean, how can you not contact the man who created the original cult masterpiece? We first reported on the remake back in March, which you can read here. In a recent interview with Indiewire, Argento revealed to the website that he hasn’t even been contacted about the Suspiria remake at all. “I’ve been waiting for this project to come about for so many years,” he told the site. “The copyrights were bought about seven years ago. First, they belonged to 20th Century Fox, then they were handed over to some other companies, and so on. But what’s really absurd — really unbelievable — is that I have never, ever been asked about it. I mean, I never got a call or anything, asking me about casting, locations, whatever. I know nothing about this project except what I read in the papers. I repeat: I have ever, ever been asked about it.” “I might give some advice on the screenplay, the script, maybe the locations,” Argento added, when asked how he would like to contribute. “When I did the film, I did a lot of research with the location scout. I heard that this remake, if it’s ever made, will be shot again in Europe. So I might be able to provide useful advice about that. But, honestly, I do think it would be better if it wasn’t remade.” “The film has a specific mood,” he elaborated. “Either you do it exactly the same way — in which case, it’s not a remake, it’s a copy, which is pointless — or, you change things and make another movie. In that case, why call it Suspiria?” Suspiria will be set in 1977 in Berlin and focus very closely on that moment in German history. Dakota Johnson and Tida Swinton have signed on for the remake. What do you think? Will you still be checking out the remake? I have to say that I feel very unexcited now. More on this as we hear more.
