“Hitchcock” is one of the two upcoming projects focusing on the life and work of acclaimed film director Alfred Hitchcock but, unlike the other, this one boasts a very impressive cast. The first trailer for it is also out.Starring Sir Anthony Hopkins as the lead and Helen Mirren as wife and partner Alma Reville, “Hitchcock” isn’t so much a biopic as it’s a love story.
Placed during the making of “Psycho,” it focuses not so much on the director’s work or personal issues, but rather on his relationship and romance with Reville.
Scarlett Johansson plays “Psycho” muse Janet Leigh, but other easily recognizable faces also make an appearance in the trailer.
Danny Huston, Jessica Biel, Toni Collette, Michael Stuhlbarg, James D’Arcy, Michael Wincott, Richard Portnow, Kurtwood Smith also star.
Directed by Sacha Gervasi, “Hitchcock” will be out on November 23.
