The cast of Fox Searchlight’s Alfred Hitchcock and the Making of Psycho continues to build as Toni Collette (Fright Night), Danny Huston (pictured; 30 Days of Night, Wrath of the Titans), Michael Stuhlbarg (Men in Black 3) and Michael Wincott (Strange Days, The Crow) are now in negotiations to star, reports Variety.
As previously reported, James D’Arcy will play Anthony Perkins and Scarlett Johansson is set to play Janet Leigh. Anthony Hopkins stars as Hitchcock in the pic, which follows the iconic helmer’s struggles during the filmmaking of his horror classic Psycho. Helen Mirren is set to co-star as Hitchcock’s wife, Alma Reville, while Jessica Biel is in talks to play actress Vera Miles.
Collette would play Peggy Robertson, Hitchcock’s longtime assistant; Huston would play Whitfield Cook, Alma’s friend; Stuhlbarg would play Lew Wasserman, Hitchcock’s charismatic agent and Hollywood-savvy friend; and Wincott would play Ed Gein, the serial killer upon whom the “Psycho” book and movie are based.
Sacha Gervasi (Anvil! The Story of Anvil) is directing from a script by John McLaughlin.
