The Vine: 'Birds' to fly again in Uni remake

26 April 2005 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

The Birds, Alfred Hitchcock's classic 1963 horror tale, looks to be taking flight again as a Universal Pictures remake. Michael Bay's Platinum Dunes shingle is in negotiations to produce the film with Peter Guber though his Mandalay Pictures banner. The new version would be based on the short story by Daphne Du Maurier, to which Universal owns the rights and which inspired Hitchcock's movie. Tippi Hedren starred in the original thriller about increasingly vicious birds that terrorize a small town. It won't be the first time Universal, which was Hitchcock's home for the latter part of the producer-director's career, has been part of a remake of the master. In 1998, Gus Van Sant directed a scene-for-scene remake of Psycho for the studio. That same year, Warner Bros. Pictures and Koppelson Entertainment turned out A Perfect Murder, based on the play that inspired Hitchcock's Dial M for Murder. And at Warners -- underscoring the rage for Hitchcock remakes -- the studio is mounting a new version of Strangers on a Train, based on the Patricia Highsmith novel that was the basis for the Hitchcock film. Platinum -- run by Bay, Andrew Form and Brad Fuller -- is no stranger to the remake genre itself. Its most recent offering, The Amityville Horror, has taken in more than $43 million after two weekends at the domestic boxoffice. Platinum remade The Texas Chain Saw Massacre and recently set up a remake of The Hitcher with Focus Features to be released through Focus' genre label, Rogue Pictures. »

Boxoffice preview: 'Amityville' is last stop for MGM

15 April 2005 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

The historic and no longer independent MGM will take a final bow this weekend without any direct competition in the marketplace. Today marks the debut of the remake The Amityville Horror, the last wide release to be managed solely by MGM's distribution team and the first MGM-produced film to count as part of Sony Pictures' market share as Sony takes over distribution of MGM titles. The film also is a co-production with Miramax's Dimension Films. Based on the best-seller by Jay Anson, the remake from director Andrew Douglas follows the Lutz family, who move into their dream home only to find that demonic forces have returned to influence the new residents. Screenwriter Scott Kosar also wrote 2003's The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, the film Amityville is most closely modeling itself on as it aims for opening-weekend grosses. »
