Naomi Watts Not Doing Birds RemakeMeh
We had a chance to talk to Brad Fuller and ask him about the rumors that Naomi Watts was on board to do the birds remake. He made it clear their has been no comittment since the film is not even written yet. Quote:
No actor or actress is going to commit to everything without a script. 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.
Directors and producers talk to tons of actors, so right now its nothing. We will have to wait for a script and then do some followup. So as of right now she is not signed to do the movie, and as Brad points out, would need a script first to make a committment. Brad also went on to let us know that a writer for the remake of The Birds will be announced in the next week or two.
