Paramount's looking to "adapt" (i.e. "remake") remake SUSPICION.
When I first read Variety's piece on the matter, I'd somehow gleaned that they were evidently re-adapting Iles' progenitor novel, a la what the Coens did with TRUE GRIT. On closer inspection of the piece, sounds like they'll primarily be pulling directly from the Hitchcok film instead.
The new version of SUSPICION will be headed-up by Veena Sud, a writer / Executive Producer on AMC's THE KILLING. She held the same positions on CBS's COLD CASE.
We recently learned that REBECCA - another novel-to-screen adaptation by Hitchcok was also being dusted off for a return to the big screen (details HERE). In that instance, however, it does sound like they'll primarily be pulling from Daphne Du Maurier's literary source material instead of Hitchcock's 1940 bigscreenificvation.
