Martin Campbell, the director of 'Casino Royale' and 'Goldeneye', may be set to remake Alfred Hitchcock's 'The Birds' for horror remake factory Platinum Dunes.
From today's Hollywood Reporter:
Martin Campbell is circling to direct the re-imagining of the Alfred Hitchcock classic "The Birds," which Platinum Dunes and Mandalay Pictures are producing for Universal.
Naomi Watts has been loosely attached to star for some time, but her involvement is script dependent.
While Campbell has no offer to direct, the early talks put the potential movie's production dates past any possible directors and actors strike.
