Pajides has reported that Martin Campbell (Casino Royale) is not going to direct the Michael Bay-produced The Birds Remake.
However, with such a high profile producer attached The Birds isn't merely going to flu south. It looks like The Last House on the Left director Dennis Iliades will be taking over the project.
While this remains only a rumor, Dennis Iliades' version appears to be going in a new direction. Campbell was headed more toward a PG-13 release. Illiades version is going to be moving toward an R-rated version.
This new version of The Birds is budgeted at $60 million.
