Martin Campbell, the man behind the Daniel Craig's 'Casino Royale', has been tapped to be helming the remake of Alfred Hitchcock's 1963 thriller 'The Birds' starring the 'King Kong' star.

The man behind several James Bond films Martin Campbell has reportedly come on board the Universal Picture's remake thriller "The Birds". According to ShockTillYouDrop, the "The Legend of Zorro" helmer will be directing Australian actress Naomi Watts in the Alfred Hitchcock's 1963 thriller remake.

Campbell will also team up with screenwriters Stiles White and Juliet Snowden as well as producers, that include Bradley Fuller, Michael Bay and Cathy Schulman.

On related reports, Watts revealed that the film's script has yet to be completed during a recent press conference to promote "Funny Games". "It's a work-in-progress at this point," the "King Kong" star confessed. "I think it's a wonderful film. There are great things in it that interest me. The script isn't completely there yet, it probably won't happen until next year."
