Hopkins Goes "Psycho" for "Hitchcock"

Sneak Peek actor Anthony Hopkins made-up to look like director 'Alfred Hitchcock' "in the first poster for the big screen thriller "Hitchcock".

Director Sasha Gervasi's Fox Searchlight feature is based on the 1990 book "Alfred Hitchcock and The Making Of  'Psycho'" by author Stephen Rebello, detailing aspects of the creation of Hitchcock's 1960 thriller "Psycho".

From Hitchcock's acquisition of the original novel by horror author Robert Bloch to his work with screenwriters, casting, filming, editing, scoring, and promotion, the book takes readers into the day-to-day lives of moviemakers who believed they were making a modestly budgeted, black-and-white shocker that represented a radical departure from the elegant, suspenseful films that made Hitchcock's reputation.

Rebello researched Hitchcock's personal records and archives, interviewing most of the "Psycho" surviving cast and crew members.

Cast in the new film also includes Jessica Biel as actress 'Vera Miles', alongside Scarlett Johansson and James D'Arcy.
