Sir Anthony Hopkins To Play Hitchcock?

Once again, Anthony Hopkins looks to play legendary director Alfred Hitchcock in a bio-pic film that focuses on the making of ‘Psycho’. First Showing gives us:

The book that ‘Alfred Hitchcock and the Making of Psycho’ is based on, first published in 1998, 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. And the rest is history. At the center of the John McLaughlin (Black Swan) script is the relationship between Hitchcock and his wife Alma Reville.

Hopkins previously had his own project ‘Alfred Hitchcock Presents’ in the works, but it went nowhere. Here’s another chance.

It’s not that this isn’t great subject matter. It is. The big question for me here is how much interest common day filmgoers may have in the possible film, even if Hopkins signs on. Film buffs love hearing stories of how our director heroes took on studio politics- but such struggles dramatized will only draw in a select few, I fear.

What’s your take?
