The classic: Alfred Hitchcock’s excellent thriller about some crazy-ass birds who peck the hell out of a rich lady and her man friend, falls into the canon of nearly perfect horror films.
The update: Who would be stupid enough to mess with Hitchcock after the utter disaster of Gus Van Sant’s pointless “Psycho” remake? Apparently Michael Bay. His production company has had this in development for several years now and is targeting a July 2009 release. Discussions are reportedly underway with Martin Campbell ("Casino Royale") to direct and Naomi Watts to star. Hitchcock probably would've loved Watts, but Michael Bay? Maybe not so much.
