Helen Mirren Eyes Alfred Hitchcock and the Making of Psycho


With the project switching studios from Paramount Pictures to 20th Century Fox, The Hollywood Reporter has word that Helen Mirren is likely joining the cast of Alfred Hitchcock and the Making of Psycho, Montecito’s adaptation of the Stephen Rebello non-fiction book.

Sacha Gervasi (Anvil! The Story of Anvil) will direct the film, which tells the true tale of Hitchcock’s attempts to finance his now-classic 1960 horror film. Adapted by John McLaughlin, who co-wrote Black Swan, the story is centered on the relationship between Hitchcock and his wife Alma Reville. Anthony Hopkins became attached to the Hitchcock role last January and Mirren is expected to play Alma.
