Bay Backs off The Birds Remake and TCM Prequel is NamedGoon
Awhile back we reported (here) that Michael Bay was looking into remaking a classic Alfred Hitchcock film "The Birds". Well yesterday while he was out promoting "The Island" some reporters asked him about his plans for it in which he gave this response:
"I don't want to talk about The Birds, because that's so far down the line, and I have misgivings about even trying to even do that, you know what I'm saying? You can't believe everything you read. It doesn't mean it's going to happen."
Finally some good news from Bay. Apparently Scarlett Johansson was also there and couldn't believe someone would even think about remaking a Hitchcock film. I think Bay needs more people like her around him.
Of course Bay had to change the subject so he brought up his Texas Chainsaw Prequel. Now it will be known as "The Origin". I guess that would make sense since it is the origin of the his Leatherface character.
