Anthony Hopkins Channeling Hitchcock for Psycho Movie

He gives MTV Movies a preview.

by | October 23, 2007 | Comments

Hot on the heels of the news that Naomi Watts has joined the cast of the Michael Bay-produced remake of Alfred Hitchcock‘s The Birds comes word that Hitchcock himself will be returning to the big screen. Sort of.

MTV Movies reports that Running with Scissors director Ryan Murphy is getting started on Alfred Hitchcock Presents, a movie about the making of Psycho — and that the director will be played by none other than Anthony Hopkins. In a February post on Presents, Tom Wells of Hollywood Elsewhere said this about the project:

Who would’ve imagined Murphy directing something as unusual and film-buffy as Alfred Hitchcock Presents, a drama about the making of Hitchcock’s Psycho, and particularly the hurdles and roadblocks that the great British director…went through in order to bring it come to fruition. Hitchcock was discouraged left and right from making it. The script was seen as way too dark and perverse (especially with the lead female star getting killed off after 45 minutes), and no one wanted to see a movie based more or less on the macabre exploits of serial killer Ed Gein.

Hopkins sat down with MTV Movies recently and gave them a few tidbits about Presents, including a description of the opening and a public debut of his Hitchcock voice. Click on the link below to see more!
