Crime Scene Pictures partners Adam Ripp and Rob Paris have come onboard with producers Francesco Melzi d’Eril from Memo Films and Luca Guadagnino under his First Sun film banner to produce and finance horror project “Suspiria,” based on Dario Argento’s 1977 film.

David Gordon Green (“Pineapple Express”) will direct from a script he wrote with Chris Gebert. Rizal Risjad, Silvia Fendi and Philip Elway will exec produce; Lisa Muskat co-produces.

CAA reps U.S. distribution rights, and Wild Bunch plans to sell international territories at Cannes. Filming is scheduled to begin in September.

Story’s centered on a bright and ambitious American student who travels to Europe to attend a renowned school.

Casting is under way.

First Sun and Francesco Melzi d’ Eril produced “I Am Love,” starring Tilda Swinton, and the upcoming “The LandLords.” Sierra/Affinity sold most territories on “Everly” at Berlin in February.
