What’s this? Anthony Hopkins playing the role of Alfred Hitchcock in the November 2012 release of “Hitchcock”, a biography of, well, Alfred Hitchcock. Check out the full synopsis courtesy of the greatest website ever, IMDB..
Sir Anthony Hopkins stars in the film, formerly known as “Alfred Hitchock And The Making Of Psycho,” touted as a biographical comedy-drama that presents a behind-the-scenes look at the film, which was marred with controversy due to complaints about violence, nudity and other sexual content and claims that a body double was used in Leigh’s place during the shower murder scene. It will also focus on Hitchcock’s relationship with his wife Alma Reville, played by Dame Helen Mirren. The “Hitchcock” plot follows the troubled financing of Psycho,” the directors battles with Hollywood censors and Hitchcocks desire to prove to his doubters, his wife and himself that he still had an edge.
This upcoming film has big names in it like Anthony Hopkins, Scarlett Johansson, Jessica Beil, and Danny Huston. I am kind of excited for this new biography/drama film which was directed by Sacha Gervasi. I have not heard a lot about Gervasi, so hopefully this will be his big break as a director.
What are your thoughts on Anthony Hopkins portraying such an iconic role. I think he will do a good job… At least I hope he will. Anthony Hopkins is an amazing actor, so I really do think he will ace this role.
Here is a little slice of epicness for you to get prepared for this new film.
