I’m crazy excited for the November 23 release of Sacha Gervasi’s Hitchcock, a love story about one of the most influential filmmakers of the last century, Alfred Hitchcock and his wife and partner Alma Reville. Fox Searchlight obviously believed this to be an Oscar contender, not to mention it pretty much has to be better than HBO and BBC’s “The Girl,” which aired two weekends ago. Anyways, check out several new stills from what could be one of the better films of the year. We’ll have a review ASAP.
Anthony Hopkins stars as Hitchcock, along with Helen Mirren as his wife during the making of Hitchcock’s seminal movie Psycho. Scarlett Johansson plays Janet Leigh, Jessica Biel as Vera Miles, and James D’Arcy as Norman Bates himself, Tony Perkins, Danny Huston, Toni Collette, Jessica Biel, Michael Stuhlbarg, James D’Arcy, Michael Wincott, Richard Portnow and Kurtwood Smith also star.
The project is based on the non-fiction book by Stephen Rebello that tracks how Hitchcock, at the height of his game as a director, decided to make a “lowly” horror movie. No studio wanted to touch it initially, so Hitchcock scrounged for financing by himself. The movie, of course, became one of his biggest hits and one of the most influential of all time.
