Bodega Bay winged terror attack in cards for George!

The Oceans 11 thesp is been tipped to star in the remake of Alfred Hitchcock fear classic The Birds. Producers want Gorgeous George to play the Mitch Brenner part played by Rod Taylor in the original.

Rod, who also traveled through time in The Time Machine (1960), thinks Clooney’s a great choice.

“I often cringe when I hear mention of remakes,” Rod revealed.

“But I’ll hold judgment, especially since I’ve been told Clooney’s the favorite.”

And in UK slang, “birds” mean “girls” which is something George really attracts!

For his next directing effort, Steven Soderbergh is plotting a 3-D live-action rock ’n’ roll musical about Cleopatra.

He is courting Catherine Zeta-Jones to play the Egyptian queen and Hugh Jackman to play her lover, Marc Antony.

The $30 million “Cleo” will be shopped for financing and distribution within the next two weeks. Casey Silver is producing.

The music has been written by the indie rock band Guided by Voices, and the script is by James Greer, a former bass player for the band and an author.

While Soderbergh has recently done a spate of wildly different projects, this one will be his first full-blown musical.

Soderbergh, who’s about to release the Benicio Del Toro starrer “Che” and wrapped Matt Damon starrer “The Informant,” is also prepping a Richard LaGravanese-scripted Liberace film at Warner Bros., with Michael Douglas attached to play the entertainer and Damon to play his companion, who sued him for palimony.

Before “Cleo,” Soderbergh’s directing “The Girlfriend Experience,” setting porn star Sasha Grey to play a $10,000-a-night call girl in a film that will be simultaneously distributed in theaters, on DVD and on the HDNet movie channel by Mark Cuban and Todd Wagner’s HDNet label.

DVD RELEASES 10/22/08

23 Oct 2008 Filed under: DVD

CASINO ROYALE - 40th ANNIVERSARY EDITION (MGM Home Video  NR  $19.98) To true JAMES BOND fans, this 1967 oddity is ‘the one that got away’. A ‘groovy spoof’ as could only be produced in the 60’s, this madcap mess stars DAVID NIVEN, WOODY ALLEN, ORSON WELLS, PETER SELLARS and URSULA ANDRESS to name just a few. It’s still strangely watchable if not very good.

FAMILY GUY - VOLUME SIX (20th Century Fox  NR  &39.98) If this set only contained the entire sixth season of one of the funniest sitcoms on TV, it would be a bargain. But the special features here make this a gold mine. Commentary tracks on almost every episode, the entire FAMILY GUY LIVE! presentation from the Montreal Comedy Fest, the infamous 100th episode and a slew of extras promise to put a smile on the face of any FAMILY GUY fan.

THE STRANGERS (Universal Studios  R  $29.98) This genuinely creepy thriller stars LIV TYLER and SCOTT SPEEDMAN as a couple arriving home late one night to discover that three strange visitors have made plans for them. If you liked FUNNY GAMES, you’ll love THE STRANGERS.
