Naomi Watts 'for The Birds remake'

Naomi Watts has been tipped to star in the upcoming remake of The Birds.

The Impossible actress is thought to be in line for the part Tippi Hedren played in the original 1963 horror movie, according to online reports.

The Hitchcock classic is being rebooted by director Michael Bay and his Platinum Dunes company.

However, the Transformers filmmaker will not direct, handing over the reins to Dutch filmmaker Diederik Van Rooijen.

The Birds was loosely based on a story by Daphne du Maurier and followed a young socialite (the part played by Tippi) who moves to a small town that finds itself under attack by vicious birds.
