The First Look at Anthony Hopkins as Alfred Hitchcock in 'Hitchcock'
Though the film used to go by the lengthy title Alfred Hitchcock and the Making of Psycho, the film has since been shortened to simply be called Hitchcock. Of course, it will still tell the story of the making of the classic horror film. Based on the book of the same name, it 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. And the rest is history. Now we finally have our first look at Anthony Hopkins as the iconic filmmaker, and it's one hell of a make-up job to make him look just right.
Sacha Gervasi (Anvil! The Story of Anvil) is directing Hitchcock, written by John McLaughlin (Black Swan) and based on Alfred Hitchcock and the Making of Psycho by Stephen Rebello. Anthony Hopkins plays Hitchcock and is supported by a great cast including Helen Mirren, Scarlett Johansson, James D'Arcy, Jessica Biel and more. No release date has been set yet so stay tuned for the latest updates on this film.
