The Hunger Games Isabelle Fuhrman Lands a Lead Role

Isabelle FuhrmanThe Hunger Games Isabelle Fuhrman is the most sought after fifteen year old actress in the world.

She recently wrapped up production on two films, The Healer and Sammy’s Adventures 2, and is currently filming M. Night Shyamalan’s After Earth with Will and Jaden Smith.


You may remember Isabelle Fuhrman from Orphan. She impressed us all with her diabolical portrait of Esther, a crazed 33 year old woman with Hypopituitarism posing as a child. The movie was so-so, but it was a brilliant performance by a twelve year old actress. In Orphan, Isabelle Fuhrman proved she had talent.


In The Hunger Games Isabelle Fuhrman played a fan favorite in Clove and seemed to handle all the hoopla surrounding The Hunger Games with class and maturity.


So It should come as no surprise that Director David Gordon Green has cast Isabelle Fuhrman in the lead role of his remake Suspiria. The film, which is based on the 1977 horror classic, will take place in an all girls boarding school instead of a ballet school. The change was made in reaction to Black Swan. But besides that change Green has promised that his remake will be ”in the spirit” of director Dario Argento’s original. Oddly enough, Natalie Portman has been attached to the project since 2009, but after Black Swan Green had to rethink his production. He decided to go younger in all area’s of the film and choose Isabelle Fuhrman to replace her. Not a bad credential for Isabelle.


Suspiria won’t start principle until September. The filmmakers will wait for Isabelle Fuhrman to finish After Earth. I am interested to see what she does next. The truth is, there aren’t enough good actors and actresses in the world of TV and film.
