Hitchcock

Directed By Sacha Gervasi

PG-13Drama / 20th Century Fox /  / Nov 23, 2012

Based on Stephen Rebello's 1998 non-fiction book, "Alfred Hitchcock and the Making of Psycho", the film tracks how Hitchcock, at the height of his game as a director, decided to make a 'lowly' horror movie. No studio wanted to touch it initially so Hitchcock scrounged for financing by himself. The film will center on the relationship between Hitchcock (Anthony Hopkins) and his wife Alma Reville (Helen Mirren).

The cast includes Anthony Hopkins, Helen Mirren, Scarlett Johansson, James D'Arcy, Jessica Biel, Toni Collette, Danny Huston, Michael Stuhlbarg, Michael Wincott, Kurtwood Smith, Ralph Macchio and Richard Portnow.

    I'm really looking forward to this. It should be a lot of fun. Hopkins can do just about anything well. I was skeptical when I learned some years back that he would be playing Richard Nixon, and by golly he brought it off.
