Fox Searchlight have offered the first look image of Anthony Hopkins as Alfred Hitchcock in The Montecito Picture Company’s Hitchcock, formerly titled Alfred Hitchcock and the Making of Psycho. The film, an adaptation of Stephen Rebello’s non-fiction book, stars Hopkins as the famous director and producer, offering a behind-the-scenes look at the production of his critically acclaimed Psycho. Hopkins stars opposite a top-notch ensemble, including Scarlett Johansson, Helen Mirren, Jessica Biel, Toni Collette, Danny Huston, Michael Stuhlbarg and Michael Wincott. Filming is now underway in Los Angeles, California, with Sacha Gervasi (Anvil! The Story of Anvil) directing from an adapted screenplay penned by Rebello himself.

Below is the first picture of Hopkins as Hitchcock. On the right is a picture of Hitchcock’s assistant, Peggy Robertson, who will be played by Toni Collette (I seriously can’t wait to see that transformation), sitting next to Kim Novak.
