Naomi Watts Not Yet Confirmed for 'The Birds' Remake

Naomi Watts heads back to her car after shopping with a friend at The Mart Collective on Friday afternoon (March 14) in Venice, Calif.

The 45-year-old actress has been the topic of rumors this week that she will be starring in a remake of the classic film The Birds, but the movie’s producer says they are not true… yet.

“No actor or actress is going to commit to everything without a script,” Brad Fuller told “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’re all talking and she’s who we’d like to have as the lead.”

I rather she would be great for that role!

I’d rather not see another classic butchered.

Have to agree with the others, tired of remakes, sequels and prequels and am boycotting them all. And you do not mess with a great director like Alfred Hitchcock.

They are not going to be able to improve on the original so why waste the money.

Are they serious? Naomi who is IMO too old to be playing that part.
Why remake something that was perfect? Tippi really went through a lot to make that picture fantastic. They always do this! Remaking a classic!
Hollywood is really running out of ideas if they are doing this. It’s just sad.
At least have someone like Scarlett Johansson play that part.

No no no no no no no!!!!!
Okay if they are going to do a remake I can think of numerous actresses to cast instead.
Reese Witherspoon, Charlize Theron, Jessica Chastain, Sienna Miller, Nicole Kidman, January Jones, Keira Knightley, Amy Adams, Emily Blunt

Ditto on remakes and sequels. Will not go to any of them. Naomi Watts needs to find a different occupation….one she is good at.

Dear Hollywood,

You cannot improve a Hitchcock movie.

Naomi would be great, if they could get the right kind of birds.
