With YOUR HIGHNESS hitting theaters next week, David Gordon Green is doing the rounds and that means plenty of folks asking about his proposed remake of SUSPIRIA; something he hopes to do next. Today sees the director discussing the use of Goblin's famous and much-loved score in the film.
Movieline spoke to Green about the iconic music, where he had this to say: "We got the rights to the Goblin score, so we’re going to use that. Steve Jablonsky (THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE '03, FRIDAY THE 13TH '09, TRANSFORMERS films) who did the score for YOUR HIGHNESS, is incredible. So I would love to see what he would do with the Goblin music. We could start in a very faithful, synthesizer kind of world of music that Goblin does in the original film, and by the end of it turn that score into a huge opera, which would be incredible."
Green also revealed more details about his plans to both remain faithful to and diverge from the source material: "I’m trying to put it together to shoot in the fall or winter next year. I just finished a new draft of the script. It’s very faithful to the original, although it doesn’t have anything to do with ballet — it’s more of an all-girls boarding school and focuses more on the occult."
"...I think fans of that movie will see that we’re taking those concepts — and in some cases those scenes, and in some cases those exact shots and dialogue —and expanding on it and making it very artful. And hopefully, horrifying."
Maybe it's my desire to see more witches/occult material on screen, or adoration for Green as a director (see SNOW ANGELS), or just plain fatigue, but I can't seem to get worked up or angry about a SUSPIRIA remake. I'm actually intrigued.
