A new set of pictures from the set of upcoming film Hitchcock were released today in People magazine, two weeks after the first teaser poster debuted. Directed by Sacha Gervasi (who penned The Terminal), the film is an homage to Alfred Hitchcock and is based upon the book Alfred Hitchcock and The Making of Psycho.
Anthony Hopkins takes the titular role and will no doubt be nominated for an Academy Award as he is the spitting image of the man, as evidenced in the above photo.
A love story about Hitchcock and his wife, Alma Reville, the story takes place during the period in which he shot Psycho. The flick features Helen Mirren as Alma, Scarlett Johansson as Janet Leigh and Jessica Biel as Vera Miles and all are shown in the mentioned picture which you can scope out below.
This may be coming off the back of seeing Looper this past weekend but Johansson in the top right corner appears as though she’s donned prosthetics! Either that or a massive round of applause for the makeup artist as she is a dead ringer for Janet Leigh (no obvious pun intended).
Biel, who this writer believes to be a far better actress than she is given credit for, looks as though she is hamming it up and despite it being awful, she did do a damn good job of period-comedy silliness in Easy Virtue.
We will see if the stars cut the old school mustard when Hitchcock opens in theaters on November 23rd.
Are your cinema toes a tingling and excited for Hitchcock after seeing these images? Let us know in the comments below.
