Natalie Portman to Star in Remake of 'Suspiria'   

August 6, 2008 TrackingB, a password-protected film industry site, reports that Natalie Portman is set to star in director David Gordon Green's remake of "Suspiria."

She'll be taking on the role previously held by Jessica Harper.

Talk about previous "cult" movies becoming totally mainstream. Here's an A-list actress signed on to star in a splatter movie remake.

Not sure if this bodes well for the genre we all love or not. Why not do something original? Why not star in a new Dario Argento movie?

Oh well.
