Sir Anthony Hopkins as Sir Alfred Hitchcock

As per my tumblr page, here is a side-by-side photo of Anthony Hopkins as Hitch and the legendary director himself:














It was reported last week that principal photography started. Here is a brief synopsis of the film’s premise:

HITCHCOCK is a love story about one of the most influential filmmakers of the last century, Alfred Hitchcock and his wife and partner Alma Reville.  The film takes place during the making of Hitchcock’s seminal movie PSYCHO.

The film will also star Scarlett Johansson (LOST IN TRANSLATION) as Janet Leigh, James D’Arcy (MASTER AND COMMANDER: THE FAR SIDE OF THE WORLD) as Anthony Perkins, Jessica Biel (THE ILLUSIONIST ) as Vera Miles, Michael Stuhlbarg (A SERIOUS MAN) as Lew Wasserman, Toni Collette (LITTLE MISS SUNSHINE) as Hitchcock’s secretary Peggy, Michael Wincott (THE COUNT OF MONTE CRISTO) as Ed Gein, Kurtwood Smith (TO DIE FOR) as Geoffrey Shurlock, Richard Portnow (GOOD MORNING VIETNAM) as Barney Balaban and Danny Huston (THE CONSTANT GARDENER) as Whitfield Cook.

No official release date is set; so stay tuned.


  1. I’ll be really interested to see this, Hitchcock is one of my favorite directors. (A bit like saying The Beatles are one of my favorite bands…but still.) Maybe it’s just me but I don’t think Hopkins looks all that much like Hitchcock here, but he will be able to do more with the gestures and speech in the actual film.

  2. Oh my goodness! That is amazing how much he resembled Hitchcock here. Did you know if he actually gained weight for the film or did he wear prosthetics?

  5. He looks amazing! I’m really excited about this one, I love biopics and the focus of the movie is a great idea – Psycho is such a classic! I only wonder why would they get Biel to be in it, she is awful.
