This is our first look at Anthony Hopkins as fabulous filmmaker Alfred Hitchcock, and it’s pretty damn creepy how much he looks like the guy! Hopkins plays the director in a new film that focuses on making ofPsycho. I can’t wait to see Hopkins’s performance in this movie!
The movie was previously called Alfred Hitchcock and the Making of Psycho, but now it’s just called Hitchcock. It’s based on Stephen Rebello‘s non-fiction book, which tells the true story of Hitchcock’s efforts to finance Psycho. The story also focuses on the relationship between Hitchcock and his wife.
The movie also stars Scarlett Johansson, who will play Janet Leigh, who was famously stabbed to death in the shower in the film. James D’Arcy was cast in the role of Anthony Perkins, who played Norman Bates, Helen Mirren plays his wife, Jessica Biel is playing Vera Miles and Ralph Macchio was just cast as screenwriter Jose Stefano.
