Casino Royale Director Attacks The Birds

Star Naomi Watts and direct Martin Campbell are flocking to Universal's remake of THE BIRDS, reports the trades. The new film will be based on Daphne du Maurier's short story, which Alfred Hitchcock used as the basis for his 1963 version.

Platinum Dunes' trio -- Michael Bay, Andrew Form and Brad Fuller -- is producing. Peter Guber and Cathy Schulman of Mandalay Pictures are also producers.

Stiles White and Juliet Snowden penned the script, but new scribes might be brought in to retool the screenplay before the potential strike.

Mandalay's David Zelon and Jonathan Krauss are shepherding for the studio, while Scott Bernstein is doing the same for Universal.
