Helen Mirren in Talks for Hitchcock

Helen Mirren in Talks for Hitchcock

Ready for another Alfred Hitchcock film? Whether you are or aren’t, it’s coming to a theater near you either way. THR reports that Anthony Hopkins is already attached to play Hitchcock, who’ll be joined by Helen Mirren and will take on the role of the filmmaker’s wife, Alma Reville.

Sacha Gervasi (Anvil! The Story of Anvil”) is directing.

Nothing’s a done deal for Mirren just yet. Sources caution that the dealmaking behind the move and Mirren boarding is in the early stages, but an April production start is being eyed. (Hopkins and Gervasi have been associated with the project for almost a year.)

The project is based on the non-fiction book by Stephen Rebello that 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. The movie, of course, became one of his biggest hits and one of the most influential of all time.

The film was originally in development for four years at Paramount before setting up at Fox Searchlight.

“Black Swan” writer John McLaughlin penned the script.
