Naomi Watts To Star in Hitchcock Thriller

Published: 2007-10-22
British actress Naomi Watts has just had a baby, but is already gearing up for starring as Melanie Daniels, a character originally portrayed by Tippi Hedren in Alfred Hitchcock's classic The Birds.

Actress Tippi Hedren spoke with MTV about her thoughts on the remake, "A couple of years ago, when they were first thinking about it, they called and asked what I thought about a remake of The Birds...and I thought, 'Why would you do that? Why? I mean, can't we find new stories, new things to do?Must you be so insecure that you have to take a film that's a classic, and I think a success, and try to do it over?' "

Universal will be adapting the film, originally from Daphne du Maurier's short story, with Mandalay Pictures as the producers. Casino Royale director Martin Campbell is in negotiations to direct the thriller.
