Michael Bay to re-make Hitchcock's "The Birds"

****ing terrible idea.

http://laist.com/2014/03/13/um_micha...g_alfred_h.php

Quote:
Michael Bay is set to produce the remake of Alfred Hitchcock's beloved thriller, The Birds.

Are you on your knees on the ground, shaking your fists at the sky and bellowing out "Why?" So are we—and we hope The Transformers director isn't going to make this one into an explosion-fest full of robotic birds that transform into cars.

Variety reported that Bay will be co-producing The Birds under his Platinum Dunes production company, which has made other great (just kidding) horror remakes such as A Nightmare on Elm Street, Friday the 13th, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and The Amityville Horror. The film's other co-producers include Mandalay Pictures and Bay's partners at Platinum Dunes. It will be directed by Dutch filmmaker Diederik Van Rooijen.

The Birds' release in 1963 followed the story of Melanie Daniels (portrayed by Tippi Hedren), a San Franciscan socialite who makes her way to a sleepy NorCal town that goes under attack by a pretty frightening flock of birds. Variety reports that the premise for Bay's remake is unknown at this point.

According to the Guardian, Naomi Watts is rumored to be eyeing the lead role played by Hedren. (And it might not be so bad since we did enjoy her role in the American remake of Japanese horror film The Ring back in 2002.)

The best part is how Hedren thinks a remake of The Birds is a horrible idea. She spoke to MTV (via Cinema Blend) about this back in 2007 when there was talk about a 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?"

She added: “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? They tried to make Psycho over and it didn’t work.”

Hedren, folks, just keeping it real.

The worst remake ever of a classic movie was the 2001 remake of Brian's Song.

The first movie was perfect. The remake blew Chunks.

Maybe the NFL can get in on this and remake the classic Super Bowls. Just use the living players & have them play tag football.
