There’s something fowl in the air, and it has to do with Universal Pictures’ remake of The Birds. According to IMDB and various other sources such as the Metro UK, George Clooney is set to topline the remake of Alfred Hitchcock’s classic 1963 adaptation of the a short story by Daphne Du Maurier. We checked with the producers who neither confirm or deny the story. Martin Campbell is attached to direct the film that is about increasingly vicious birds that terrorize a small town. Consider this a rumor until officially reported.
