Paramount To Remake Alfred Hitchcock’s ‘Suspicion’

Sure, remaking a classic from one of film’s most iconic filmmakers, Alfred Hitchcock, seems like a daunting task. And it is, but this one may feature the right creative team to make it work.

Variety reports that Hitch’s classic film, Suspicion, is set to be remade by Paramount, with The Killing showrunner Veena Sud attached to adapt the film, itself based on the French novel, Before The Fact.

The film follows a young woman who comes to believe that her recently wedded husband is trying to off her for a monetary gain. The film starred Joan Fontaine and Cary Grant, in one of Hitchcock’s most underrated masterpieces.

Yes, this comes off as horribly misguided. All-time dumb. However, as a huge fan of The Killing and Sud, I think this film may just work. I think the creative team is perfectly suited for this type of project, something that I can’t really say about many previous Hitchcock remakes or adaptations. But then again, that’s just me.

This also comes on the heels of the announcement of another Hitchcock remake, Rebecca.

What do you think?
