Based on the cast alone, Sacha Gervasi's ALFRED HITCHCOCK AND THE MAKING OF PSYCHO is all but a must see. The shite has Sir Anthony Hopkins as Hitch himself, Helen Mirren as his wifey Alma, Scarlett Johansson as Janet Leigh and Jessica Biel as Vera Miles. That fierce foursome by itself demands our attention, so when you consider everyone else involved, including the newest cast addition, all signs point to potential greatness...
Word has come in that "CSI" star Wallace Langham (seen right) has been cast as Saul Bass in ALFRED HITCHCOCK AND THE MAKING OF PSYCHO. Bass, the famed artist, designed the main titles for PSYCHO, as well has handled the story boards, which were meticulous under Hitch's watch.
Also featuring Danny Huston, Michael Stuhlbarg, James D'Arcy, Toni Collette and Michael Wincott - the film is:
A gripping behind-the-scenes look inside the classic suspense shocker-and the creative genius who revolutionized filmmaking. First released in June 1960, Psycho altered the landscape of horror films forever. But just as compelling as the movie itself is the story behind it.
Stephen Rebello brings to life the creation of one of Hollywood's most iconic films from the story of Wisconsin murderer Ed Gein the real-life inspiration for the character of Norman Bates to Hitchcock's groundbreaking achievements in cinematography sound editing and promotion. Packed with captivating insights from the film's stars, writers, and crew members, Alfred Hitchcock and the Making of Psycho is a riveting and definitive history of a signature Hitchcock cinematic masterpiece.
The flick drops sometime in 2013.
