Helen Mirren to Go Psycho for Hitchcock Project?
Style. Beauty. Grace. We'll watch the eternally lovely Helen Mirren in anything. Having her circle Alfred Hitchcock and the Making of Psycho? Well hell, that's just the icing on the proverbial cake!
According to The Hollywood Reporter, after four years in development at Paramount, the film is finally in the process of being set up at Fox Searchlight.
Anthony Hopkins, who is attached to play Hitchcock, and Sacha Gervasi (Anvil! The Story of Anvil), who is directing, are being joined by Mirren, who will play the filmmaker's wife, Alma Reville.
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 films of all time.
