Hitchcock's Birds remake continues
Oh I really had thought that the planned remake of The Birds had died, unfortunately though it hasn't and the latest reports are that the Studio are still trying to move forward with it.
As I wrote about a long time ago, this isn't a remake as such but it's a return to the original short story from which the film is based. The author, Daphne Du Maurier, reportedly was never happy with the Hitchcock film version.
Du Maurier's story, by contrast, was set in Cornwall in the United Kingdom and tells a story of birds' becoming hostile after a harsh winter with little food. She was said to have been unhappy with Hitchcock's film version.
Oh dear, that sounds like total b-movie fodder to me. Hardly sounds like the thriller the original is.
