Hopkins as Hitchcock?

February 24, 2007 / Posted by:

hopkins.jpg Ryan Murphy is a busy man. The Nip/Tuck creator has his hands full with his FX TV show as well as directing “Need” starring Nicole Kidman and Naomi Watts. He’s added “Alfred Hitchcock Presents” to his schedule. Ryan will direct the film about Alfred Hitchcock and the troubles he faced in making “Psycho.” The script was seen as way too dark and perverse, especially his twist of the lead female star getting killed off after 45 minutes. Anthony Hopkins is reportedly already in deep talks to play Hitchcock and Helen Mirren is apparently in talks to play his wife and collaborater Alma Reville. This sounds hot, but please don’t let them make the same mistake as Gus Van Sant with casting Anne Heche as Janet Leigh. God awful. Source
