Lucas to play Alfred Hitchcock

With Ewan McGregor co-starring in the movie


According to The Mirror, “Little Britain” scene-stealer Matt Lucas is headed ‘North by Northwest’. Or rather, ‘Psycho’. Perhaps off with ‘The Birds’. Yep, he’s going to play Alfred Hitchcock.

The as-yet untitled movie will tell of Hitchcock’s early life in the East End of London. It will co-star Ewan McGregor.

“Matt is the perfect choice”, a source tells the paper. “Their physical similarities are uncanny and he is a big fan of Hitch’s movies. It’s his first major film role and he’s looking forward to going on to the big screen.”
