The Birds star Rod Taylor was wary of a remake of the 1963 movie - until he learned George Clooney is favourite to take the lead role.
Clooney is tipped to play lawyer Mitch Brenner in a remake of Alfred Hitchcock's classic horror film.
And Taylor predicts Clooney will do a better job than any other actor.
He says, "I often cringe when I hear mention of remakes, but I'll hold judgement, especially since I've been told Clooney's the favourite."
