Finally, something truly terrifying has come out of Hollywood. Make sure you’re sitting down, and don’t say we didn’t warn you — this news is not for the faint of heart.

That long-threatened remake of Alfred Hitchcock‘s The Birds is on its way, and Michael Bay is still involved.

Okay, okay — don’t jump off those ledges just yet. Bay will be in the producer‘s chair for the new Birds; as Variety reports, his Platinum Dunes shingle will be working with Mandalay Pictures and Universal on a “reimagining” of the Daphne du Maurier short story that inspired Hitchcock’s 1963 classic.

The updated Birds isn’t being rushed out pre-strike, but it’s already got a pair of names attached — Naomi Watts has agreed to star, and Martin Campbell is in talks to direct. Variety‘s report names Stiles White and Juliet Snowden as having written a “script that is still being developed” and says that “new scribes may be brought aboard.”
