Fuhrman lands lead in ‘Suspiria’

Star of 'Orphan' and 'Hunger Games' to topline David Gordon Green remake

Isabelle Fuhrman, who parlayed her starring turn in “Orphan” into a key supporting role in “The Hunger Games,” has landed the lead in David Gordon Green’s remake of “Suspiria.”

Dario Argento’s 1977 horror pic followed Suzie, a young girl who travels to Europe to attend a world-renowned school, only to learn that the academy is a front for a coven of witches.

Green is directing from a script he co-wrote with Chris Gebert. Crime Scene Pictures principals Adam Ripp and Rob Paris are producing with Francesco Melzi d’Eril of Memo Films and “I Am Love” helmer Luca Guadagnino of First Sun.

Rizal Risjad, Silvia Fendi and Philip Elway will exec produce, while Lisa Muskat will co-produce. Wild Bunch is selling foreign rights at Cannes, and CAA is handling the domestic distribution deal. Production will start in September.

Fuhrman, repped by CAA and Trilogy Talent, recently wrapped Giorgio Serafini’s indie “The Healer” and is currently filming M. Night Shyamalan’s sci-fi pic “After Earth” with Jaden Smith.
