Status updates for remakes of The Birds, A Nightmare on Elm Street and Rosemary’s Baby


We have known that they are planning on remakes of all of these films for a while now but thanks to our friends over at SlashFilm we have updates of what stage each of them are at:

“The Birds – “Martin Campbell is going to be directing that. Naomi Watts has said that she wants to star in the movie. We have a treatment that we’re submitting to the studio in the next week or so. And if they sign off on that treatment, we’ll go to script, and hopefully we’ll have a script that’s shootable next summer.”

A Nightmare on Elm Street – “We don’t have a deal to do that yet. We’re hoping that will happen soon. But as of today, we don’t have a deal. New Line hired a writer, Wesley Strick, to start writing it. And we have nothing to do with it except maybe ask them to hire us. We’re close. A deal’s being set.”

Rosemary’s Baby – “We’re in the process of hiring a writer, to kind of update that movie. That’s the next movie that we’re making with Paramount Studios.”

Like most people I don’t want any of these films remade but out of three I think The Birds would benefit the most from an update. With the special effects they have now that they didn’t have back in the 60’s (although that’s part of the charm of the original) they could really create a remake of this that’s something behold. However Rosemary’s Baby and especially A Nightmare on Elm Street I see no real point in remaking. What do you make of it?
