Anthony Hopkins to Play Alfred Hitchcock in Biopic

Anthony Hopkins has played some pretty dark characters ("Hello, Clarice . . ."), but for his latest role, he's going to play the man who mastered darkness. Hopkins is in talks to play Alfred Hitchcock in a biopic about the legendary director's life.

The film is an adaptation of the book Alfred Hitchcock and the Making of Psycho, which focuses on the relationship between Hitchcock and his wife while he was developing the iconic thriller Psycho. Sacha Gervasi (director of Anvil! The Story of Anvil) is in negotiations to direct.

sounds like total Oscar-bait, but i love the very idea of this!Anthony Hopkins is too good to waste in B or C grade movies like The Wolfman and whatever his newest is about.

oh my goodness, I just flipped my lid!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! wow, I can't even form words to describe how exciting this is to me - Alfred Hitchcock is without a doubt one of the top five best and most influential directors of all time, and I'll go further to say one of the 100 most influential people period. that not only a movie is being made about his fascinating life, but in addition one of the most talented and transformational actors is going to play him? this bodes well; hopefully the rest of the movie is as fantastic as this casting...
