The Birds (1963)
Griffith and Don divorced in 1996 but remain good friends. When asked who her first celebrity crush was, Griffith giggled, looking to Don, saying, "He's sitting right here!"
Don told THR he would love to work with his daughter Dakota, saying, "She's a great actress. I would be honored."
Hedren praised her Griffith's performance in Working Girl, choosing...
“When he told me that he would ruin me, I just told him do what he had to do,” recalls Hedren. “I went out of the door and slammed it so hard that I looked back to see if it was still on its hinges.”
During the shooting of their two movies, Hitchcock would get jealous and resentful when he saw Hedren speaking to male colleagues. At one point, when they were both in the back of a limousine, the director lunged at Hedren and tried to kiss her. In another encounter, during the filming of “Marnie,” Hitchcock asked the actress to touch him and shared romantic fantasies with her. After she rebuffed him, he chilled toward her.

“The perils for women in Hollywood are embedded, like land mines, from an actress’s debut to her swan song,” says film critic and historian Carrie Rickey, “where moguls like Harry Cohn reputedly wouldn’t cast starlets like Marilyn Monroe and Kim Novak unless they auditioned in bed.”

According to Digital Spy, the TV adaptation will remain true to du Maurier’s novel and is set in rural Cornwall, where the community are being terrorised by a flock of birds shortly after the end of World War II. Irish writer Conor McPherson (The Eclipse, The Actors) is writing the miniseries, having previously adapted the novella for the stage in 2009.
A big screen remake of The Birds was announced back in 2007, with Naomi Watts attached to star. However, the project stalled, and has remained stuck in development hell ever since. The last update came in 2014, when it was announced that Diederik Van Rooijen (Taped, Daylight) would be directing.
It's not hard to imagine this story being turned into a TV series. If it can be done with Psycho, with A&E's Bates Motel, it can be done with The Birds. The BBC even hired Harry Potter producer David Heyman to develop it for them, which means we will get a quality series. Of course, The BBC puts out a lot of quality series.
According to Digital Spy, The series will be set in rural Cornwall, "where a farmhand and his community is being terrorized by flocks of birds and seagulls shortly after the end of the Second World War.

The post ‘The Birds’ TV Remake Coming from the BBC and Harry Potter Producer appeared first on /Film.
The source novel for Alfred Hitchcock’s classic horror film The Birds is to be adapted again for TV by the BBC...
Don’t they ever stop migrating?
The Birds first landed in Cornwall, England, in Daphne du Maurier’s original 1952 book, and Alfred Hitchcock let them loose in Bodega Bay, California, when he made the book into one of his greatest horror films in 1963. Now, the BBC is bringing them back to rural Cornwall for an upcoming contemporary TV drama. The adaptation is likely to be more faithful to the book, rather than be a direct remake of the film.
The Birds will be written by Irish playwright and writer Conor McPherson, who adapted the novella as a stage play in 2009. McPherson also wrote the films The Eclipse and The Actors.
It'll be produced by Heyday Television, the joint venture of feature producer David Heyman (Harry Potter,

In 1963 Oscar voters went for an all-first-timers nominee list in Supporting Actress. The eldest contenders would soon become Dames (Margaret Rutherford and Edith Evans were both OBEs at the time). Rutherford, the eventual winner, was the only nominee with an extensive film history and she was in the middle of a hot streak with her signature role as Jane Marple which ran across multiple films from through 1961-1965. In fact, Agatha Christie had just dedicated her new book "The
