Fox Searchlight have posted this rather bizarre shot of Sir Anthony Hopkins as Sir Alfred Hitchcock. I dolled it up to make it look old to hide the low-res nature of the shot.
Kudos to the make-up people and fat-chin sculptors, but it’s all going to come down to how he waddles and tackles that London accent. “Dahn the Eust Und guvnah an’ awl tha”.
Hopkins plays England’s greatest ever film-maker in the upcoming Hitchcock, which is adapted from Alfred Hitchcock and the Making of Psycho. The cast is quite impressive with Scarlett Johansson playing the infamous shower victim Janet Leigh. Jessica Biel, Toni Collette and Helen Mirren are also in the cast. The film started filming last week and will be in theatres next year.
