The new film will star Naomi Watts and be directed by Martin Campbell. Tippi Hedren star of the original film "The Birds," is speaking out about this. Quoted by MTV, Hedren said: "A couple of years ago, when they were first thinking about it, they called and asked what I thought about a remake of The Birds. And I thought, Why would you do that? Why? I mean, can't we find new stories, new things to do? Must you be so insecure that you have to take a film that's a classic, and I think a success, and try to do it over?"
