Production is just about to begin on Hitchcock (formerly called Hithcock And The Making Of Psycho), which sees Anthony Hopkins in the titles role. Now People has revealed the first image of the actor in makeup and the resemblance is uncanny.
The film is the feature directorial debut of documentarian Sacha Gervasi, and also stars Helen Mirren as the director’s wife, Alma; Scarlett Johansson as Janet Leigh; Jessica Biel as actress Vera Miles; and James D’Arcy as Anthony Perkins. Toni Collette will play Peggy Robertson, Hitchcock’s assistant; Danny Huston is set to be Whitfield Cook, a friend of Alma.
It’ll be interesting to hear when the first footage arrives, whether Hopkins has got Hitchcock’s distinctive voice down too.
