Will THE BIRDS Be Flocking Again?

Those rumors that Naomi Watts is lined up to head a remake of the Alfred Hitchcock classic The Birds may just be true.

While interviewing Watts about her role in director David Cronenberg’s upcoming crime drama Eastern Promises, ShockTillYouDrop squeezed in a question about the rumors circulating that she is going to take the lead role made famous by Tippi Hedron. Her response-

“It’s happening, but I haven’t read the script yet, but we’re in talks, and I hope it works out. They’re still working on it and making sure it’s just right.”

The script Watts references is currently being worked on by Juliet Snowden and Stiles White for producer Michael Bay. No director has been attached to the project yet.
