Il film sulla lavorazione del capolavoro di Hitchcock si fa via via più affollato. Le riprese della sceneggiatura scritta da John McLaughlin e Tom Thayer cominceranno ad aprile, per la regia di Sacha Gervasi (Anvil! e la sceneggiatura di The Terminal).
Scarlett Johansson sarà Janet Leigh, Anthony Hopkins invece vestirà i panni di Hitchcock, mentre James D’Arcy (W.E.) interpreterà Anthony Perkins. Infine Helen Mirren è stata scelta per il ruolo della moglie e segretaria del maestro inglese.
The film will chronicle the production of the seminal thriller, which Hitchcock pursued despite the odds stacked against him. “Psycho” was a project that Paramount hated. Hitchcock was originally going to direct “No Bail For The Judge” with Audrey Hepburn but had to scrap those plans when the actress became pregnant. So he moved on to “Psycho,” and the studio was so negative on the project they gave him a paltry budget and resources, leading the director to back the movie through his own production shingle, build his own sets and utilize crew members from his TV show.
