Reading the Screen: Anthony Hopkins as Alfred Hitchcock?
Posted by: David Pitt

hitchI’m not sure how I missed this, but apparently there’s going to be a movie based on Stephen Rebello’s Alfred Hitchcock and the Making of Psycho (1990).

I’ve read the book. It’s splendid, and could make a fine movie. And get this: according to this story at The Hollywood Reporter, Anthony Hopkins is “in talks” to play the great director.

I know what some of you are thinking: hey, but he doesn’t look anything like Hitch. Fair enough, but Hopkins looks nothing like Richard Nixon, either, and he was brilliant in Oliver Stone’s film.

I, for one, hope the movie gets made, if for no other reason than it’ll give us all the thrill of seeing Hopkins play one of the cinema’s most intriguing directors.
