Paramount Has a Suspicion That Another Hitchcock Remake is On its Way
Well, it seems as if Alfred Hitchcock's entire body of work is being harvested for potential remakes, and you can add yet another one to the ever-growing list. Read on for the details.
According to Variety, Paramount is looking to adapt Alfred Hitchcock's Suspicion and has tapped Veena Sud of AMC's "The Killing" to pen the script, with Montecito Pictures producing.
The original film, based on Francis Iles's 1932 novel Before the Fact, centers on a dowdy young woman (portrayed by Joan Fontaine) marrying an irresponsible charmer (played by Cary Grant) despite the strong disapproval of her wealthy father -- and then beginning to suspect that her husband plans to kill her. Fontaine won a best actress Oscar for her performance in the 1941 feature.
The deal for Suspicion comes on the heels of DreamWorks and Working Title Films announcing plans for a remake of Hitchcock's Rebecca with Eastern Promises scribe Steven Knight writing.
