'Good Evening': Anthony Hopkins To Star In Hitchcock Biopic?
The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that Sir Anthony Hopkins, best known as Hannibal Lecter and, of course as Tom Cruise's boss in Mission: Impossible 2, is in talks to play the similarly creepy Master of Suspense, Alfred Hitchcock. The movie will detail the struggles that Hitchcock went through to make Psycho, a film that many thought would capsize his career. Sacha Gervasi, helmer of the documentary Anvil! The Story of Anvil, is in talks to direct. I think Anthony Hopkins could make a great Hitchcock, so long as he starts packing on the pounds. Sir Tony is a pretty slight fella, and Hitchcock was one of our more porcine directors. Just a thought! [THR]
