Will Anthony Hopkins Play Alfred Hitchcock in the 'Making of Psycho'?


In my eyes Sir Anthony Hopkins can almost do no wrong, I mean the dude pretty much owns the screen and puts on awesome performances. Now according to Bloody-Disgusting Anthony Hopkins is currently in talks to portray the absolute master of suspense in the adaptation of Stephen Rebello's non-fiction book Alfred Hitchcock and the Making of Psycho.

Sacha Gervasi who helmed the documentary Anvil! The Story of Anvil, is currently in talks to direct this feature.

Book Synopsis: "A gripping behind-the-scenes look inside the classic suspense shocker--and the creative genius who revolutionized film-making

First released in June 1960, Psycho altered the landscape of horror films forever. But just as compelling as the movie itself is the story behind it. 

Stephen Rebello brings to life the creation of one of Hollywood's most iconic films, from the story of Wisconsin murderer Ed Gein, the real-life inspiration for the character of Norman Bates, to Hitchcock's groundbreaking achievements in cinematography, sound, editing, and promotion. Packed with captivating insights from the film's stars, writers, and crewmembers,
Alfred Hitchcock and the Making of Psycho is a riveting and definitive history of a signature Hitchcock cinematic masterpiece."
