Paramount Remaking Suspicion

Paramount Remaking Suspicion

It’s clearly open season on remakes of Hitchcock movies, as Paramount has announced that it is aiming to pump out a new take on the director’s 1941 film Suspicion, with Veena Sud hired to write the script.

Much like the Rebecca adaptation announced late last week, there’s a healthy chance this won’t be a direct redrafting of Hitch’s work. Because, as with the other movie, Suspicion was based on a book, in this case Francis IIles’ 1932 novel Before The Fact.

Joan Fontaine starred in the original film version, which saw a dowdy young woman hitched to a smooth playboy charmer (Cary Grant) over the objections of her rich father. She soon starts to suspect that he’s plotting to kill her so he can swipe her fortune. The performance nabbed Fontaine an Oscar for her role, so no doubt actresses will be queuing up to try their hand at the role.

Sud is best known as the executive producer behind the US remake of Forbrydelsen, The Killing. She’s also worked on the likes of Cold Case. We’re hoping that she manages to find a solid ending for Suspicion as The Killing tailed off rather badly (though it has a chance to redeem itself when it returns to American screens on April 1.)
