Original Birds actress attacks remake
Tippi Hedren is the actress that originally starred in The Birds, Alfred Hitchcock's classic film which is undergoing a remake with Naomi Watts taking her role over.
She's been talking about the attempt, and she's none too happy about it, in fact she sounds downright angry.
I don't like to give out links to the overly restrictive videos of MTV Movies Blog who believe that they have some copyright issues that mean they can't deliver the content to a global organisation - MTV being a global organisation - however this is an interesting one and the video might well be worth watching.
"I thought 'Why would you do that? Why?' I mean, can't we find new stories, new things to do?"
Our thoughts exactly. They can't think of enough new ideas to keep the cinemas busy, or the books ticking over.
"They tried to make 'Psycho" over and it didn't work," she said. "Must you be so insecure [that] you have to take a films that's become a classic and a great success and then try to do it over?"
Apparently the video has Hedren saying some pretty strong things against the remake, probably things we already know, but since I'm not in America I'm not allowed to watch the video.
Feel free to watch it, but for legal reasons I'm sure you won't be able to talk about it afterwards!
