Ralph Macchio, best known as The Karate Kid, has signed on to Hitchock (formerly Hitchcock And The Making Of Psycho), says Deadline. Macchio will play Psycho screenwriter Joe Stefano.
Anthony Hopkins plays Hitchcock, Helen Mirren plays Alma Reville, Scarlett Johansson plays Janet Leigh, and Jessica Biehl plays Vera Miles. The Sacha Gervasi-directed adaptation of the Stephen Rebello book is just getting underway through Montecito Picture Co and Fox Searchlight.
“‘Hitchock’ 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.’“
