Naomi Watts hopes she can star in a remake of Alfred Hitchcock's 'The Birds'.

The Australian actress reveals plans are afoot for a remake of the project, but no script has currently been written for her to sign up to.

She said: "It sounded like a good idea, but The Script's not there yet. I'd love to have been a Hitchcock blonde.

"A few directors I've worked with have been heavily influenced by Hitchcock, so I feel like I've gotten close."

The 42-year-old beauty - who is in a long-term relationship with fellow Hollywood star Liev Schreiber - also reveals her portrayal of Marilyn Monroe in an adaptation of Joyce Carol Oates' 'Blonde' will be a dark portrayal of the busty actress.

She told The Scotsman: "Everyone thinks, 'Ooh, Marilyn Monroe,' but it's not a glossy picture. It's quite dark. But a great story. I get fragility, definitely."

Andrew Dominik's 'Blonde' is due for release in 2012.
