Will Utilize For Own Remake, 'Your Highness' Composer Steve Jablonsky On Board



With his "Suspiria" remake now set as his next project, versatile director David Gordon Green is beginning to tease the long-gestating remake in bits and pieces as the first half of his 2011 double feature, medieval-stoner-comedy "Your Highness," nears release.

The helmer has already promisingly noted that he'll be looking to cast an unknown in the lead, will steer away from the original's ballet academy setting and that while it won't "follow the trend of the traditional horror movies of late," his vision is very faithful to the original even sharing the "exact shots and dialogue and expanding on it and making it very artful." Green now also reveals that he'll be taking major inspiration from another iconic aspect of the original: the groundbreaking score by Italian progressive rock band Goblin.

“We got the rights to the Goblin score, so we’re going to use that," the director explained to Movieline. "Steve Jablonsky, who did the score for 'Your Highness,' is incredible. So I would love to see what he would do with the Goblin music. We could start in a very faithful, synthesizer kind of world of music that Goblin does in the original film, and by the end of it turn that score into a huge opera, which would be incredible.”

While not a major name just yet, Jablonsky has been an understudy of Hans Zimmer at Remote Control Productions for several years and has been the music director for all of the Michael Bay produced or directed films since "The Island" - but don't hold that against him. We can't wait to hear what he conjures up, but do hold slight fears that we're getting ahead of ourselves for the remake which Green describes himself as a "a leap of faith, financially." The helmer is aiming for a shoot late '11/early '12 after his two films, "Your Highness" and "The Sitter" starring Jonah Hill, hit this year on April 8th and December 8th respectively.
