Bay Thinks Remakes Are for the "Birds"

After remaking "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre" and "The Amityville Horror," as well as staking out "The Hitcher" for the same treatment, Michael Bay and his Platinum Dunes partners have yet another classic they want to revisit: "The Birds."Bay and producer Peter Guber plan to mount a second adaptation of Daphne Du Maurier‘s short story, which was also the inspiration for Alfred Hitchcock‘s horror classic from 1963. Universal owns the rights to the property and will be happy to produce the new birdfest, but they also thought Gus Van Sant‘s "Psycho" remake was a pretty great idea, too.
