Hitchcock scheduled for release in November 2012
Fox Searchlight has announced that Sacha Gervasi’s HITCHCOCK, starring Anthony Hopkins as the legendary director, has received a November 23, 2012 release date. In addition, they have unveiled the first poster, which you can see below. It’s obvious that the studio will push Hopkins in the Oscar race, as this is a prime Awards Season release.
Sir Anthony Hopkins stars in the film, formerly known as “Alfred Hitchock And The Making Of Psycho,” touted as a biographical comedy-drama that presents a behind-the-scenes look at the film, which was marred with controversy due to complaints about violence, nudity and other sexual content and claims that a body double was used in Leigh’s place during the shower murder scene. It will also focus on Hitchcock’s relationship with his wife Alma Reville, played by Dame Helen Mirren. The “Hitchcock” plot follows the troubled financing of Psycho,” the directors battles with Hollywood censors and Hitchcock’s desire to prove to his doubters, his wife and himself that he still had an edge.
