Producer Thinks Naomi Watts is for "The Birds"

by | January 15, 2007 | Comments

It’s remake heaven. Platinum Dunes producer Brad Fuller has his sights on adding "The Birds" to his slate — which already includes "The Hitcher," "Texas Chainsaw Massacre," "Amityville Horror" and "Friday the 13th." And "King Kong" remake veteran Naomi Watts is his first pick for the Tippi Hedren role.

"No actor or actress is going to commit to anything without a script," said Fuller. "We’ve sat down with her and conceptually I think we all want to make the same movie, but until we have a script and a director, I think it’s a little premature. But, we’ll all talking and she’s who we’d like to have as the lead."

There’s no deadline for making art, but Fuller hopes to have a solid enough draft soon to get Watts to commit. "In the next two weeks, or the next week or so I think they’ll announce it because they’re starting to talk about a new writer to come on and write that. It definitely feels like it’s moving."
