Platinum Dunes' Brad Fuller and Andrew Form, who are producing the film alongside Transformers' Michael Bay, have revealed that a script for the reinvention is due within the next couple of weeks.
"We're expecting a script in the next 2-3 weeks, but...it's not like Drew, Michael and I think that we're just going to c**p all over Alfred Hitchcock's movie," Fuller told Collider. "I mean, Alfred Hitchcock in a company-wide opinion is probably the greatest director of what we do and other things too.
"And as someone, who at least Michael and I studied in college...there's a reverence for him. So that's not a movie that we're just going to step up and just go have birds attacking people...If we can't make that movie unique or add something to it, I don't think we're going to make it."
Casino Royale director Martin Campbell will helm the remake, while Eastern Promises actress Naomi Watts has been confirmed as the star.
"Once you get a filmmaker like Martin Campbell and start talking to an actress like Naomi Watts, a project can pick up momentum," added Fuller. "But they're not interested in making the same movie that Hitchcock made."
