Alfred Hitchcock Presents... Anthony Hopkins

From Hollywood Elsewhere comes news of a new drama about Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho, and all that he had to go through to get it made back in the late 1950's. The film is set to be directed by Ryan Murphy, of last year's Running with Scissors, and it's rumored that Anthony Hopkins will be playing the legendary director Mr. Hitchcock. Also included in discussions is that Helen Mirren will play his wife and lifelong creative collaborator Alma Reville. The title will be, of course, Alfred Hitchcock Presents.
I'm a bit intrigued at why this is a film project (that may even come to theaters) and not something that will show up on a Saturday afternoon on TNT? I'm sure Hitchcock fans may argue that there may be a lot to this, but is it really possible? Do any Hitchcock fans think that this sounds like it might be good?
