The original 1963 movie, which starred Rod Taylor and Tippi Hedren, was based on a Daphne Du Maurier story about a small Californian town where birds suddenly start attacking people.
Taylor has said that he is sceptical about movie remakes but would be happy to see Clooney take over his role as lawyer Mitch Brenner.
"I often cringe when I hear mention of remakes but I'll hold judgement, especially since I've been told Clooney's the favourite," he told the Daily Express.
However, co-star Hedren is not so keen on the film: "Can't we find new stories, new things to do? Must you be so insecure that you have to take a film that's a classic and try to do it over?"
