"It was interesting. I saw the original and it was intense, but Michael Haneke is a great filmmaker. I think his films will be remembered in 100 years to come. He's really trying to do something. We remade the film and what was interesting was that he wanted to do the exact same shots, so it was a great experience. He works from a very disciplined place. Everything's very worked-out, very structured, and that makes it a lot harder to be organic, because you've got so many notes in your head. Completely different style from the way David Cronenberg works."
And what about the remake of Alfred Hitchcock's The Birds that Naomi has been rumored to star in? "It's happening," she replied, "but I haven't read the script yet, but we're in talks, and I hope it works out. They're still working on it and making sure it's just right."
In the meantime, you can see Naomi in Cronenberg's Eastern Promises and read a full interview with her over on ComingSoon.net.
