Anthony Hopkins is reportedly in talks to play legendary British director Alfred Hitchcock in an adaption of Stephen Rebellos non-fiction book: Alfred Hitchcock and the Making of Psycho. THR also reports that Sacha Gervasi is in talks to direct the film for Paramount. The 1998 book "tracks how Hitchcock, at the height of his game as a director, decided to make a 'lowly' horror movie. No studio wanted to touch it initially so Hitchcock scrounged for financing by himself." John McLaughlin is penning the script which is centered on the relationship between Hitchcock and his wife Alma Reville. Its an interesting character study for Hopkins whom has an incredable geniality in his portrayal of real personas.
