Rumours are swirling a remake of a Hitchcock horror could be filmed in Cornwall.

The director of 'The Birds' is hinting it could be made where it was first thought up.

Fowey's Daphne du Maurier wrote the short story about the killer creatures terrorising a seaside village.

Naomi Watts is among the stars who could get a lead role.

It will be directed by the man behind 'The Transformers' Michael Bay. He may decide to switch the action from the Californian setting of the 1963 original back to its Cornish roots.

Not everyone is backing the remake. Tippi Hedren, who famously played the lead role in the original movie, said: “A couple of years ago, when they were first thinking about it, they asked what I thought about a remake of 'The Birds'. I thought ‘Why would you do that? Why?’ Can’t we find new stories - new things to do?”

It is thought the remake will be closer to the original short story than famous Hitchcock version.

Cornwall has attracted a string of big name celebrities over the last couple of years. They include Brad Pitt, who shot scenes for zombie movie 'World War Z' in Falmouth, and Bill Nighy and Rachel McAdams whose romcom 'About Time' was filmed around Portloe and Gorran Haven.

In both of those movies locals were invited to star as extras during filming.
