Hollywood really has become more about money than originality these days and, rather than coming up with some new and exciting movie ideas, it seems that we are just getting more and more of the same, whether it be prequels, sequels, reboots or remakes, there are plenty coming our way in the coming years. While some of these projects have actually managed to prove quite successful and even please the hardcore fans, more often than not they miss the mark by a long way.
There have been plenty of occasions over the years, that we have seen a popular and successful foreign movie being adapted for Hollywood, which also seems to fall flat and lose almost everything that made the original so great. So when it was announced that we were getting a Hollywood remake of the hit 1977 movie Suspiria, starring the very talented Chloe Moretz, it is fair to say that the expectations were not exactly high.
For those of you who have not seen the original movie, we would recommend that you go and give it a watch, as it is a truly brilliant film, but if you want to know more about what to expect from the Suspiria remake, it has been described as, "A young American ballerina comes to train at a prestigious German dance academy and comes to uncover the school's dark and menacing secrets."
As well as having Chloe Moretz starring in the project, the Suspiria cast also includes such names as Dakota Johnson, Tilda Swinton, and Mia Goth, to name just a handful. The Suspiria remake has been directed by Luca Guadagnino, with the movie currently in post-production and awaiting an official release date. We will keep you posted.
