David Gordon Green has said that his remake of Dario Argento’s Suspiria is on hold indefinitely.

The director of All The Real Girls and Pineapple Express has been attached to the Argento remake for years and a cast, including Isabelle Furhman (Orphan), Michael Nyqvist (The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo), Janet McTeer (Albert Nobbs), Antje Traue (Man Of Steel), and the peerless Isabelle Huppert, was announced at Cannes in 2012.

However, speakng to IndieWire, Green revealed exactly what is happening with his version of Suspiria.

“Nothing. It’s just not the right time for that movie to exist. It’s a classy, elegant horror movie and people want to see things that are a little more raw, like found footage. Nobody’s really begging for something that’s elegant, classy and expensive.”

You can buy Suspiria on Blu-ray for £13.10 at Amazon.co.uk.
