(ANI): Naomi Watts is set to star in the remake of Alfred
Hitchcock's suspense classic 'The Birds' from 1963. Watts is to
take the lead role, played by Tippi Hedren in the original.
However, Hedren is not too pleased with the remake. She has called
the remake 'insulting'.
"To take a work of art like that and try to copy it is like
trying to imitate the Mona Lisa," the Daily Express quoted Hedren
as saying. "I think Hitch would call them tiny tots trying to make
movies and ask why they don't have an original thought in their
heads," she added.
