Cinematic suspense icon Alfred Hitchcock will soon have part of his life brought to the big-screen with the focus on the struggles of making of seminal horror classic PSYCHO detailed in Sacha Gervasi’s forthcoming film. Anthony Hopkins will portray the legendary film director alongside an all-star cast of Scarlett Johansson, James D’Arcy, Jessica Biel, Ralph Macchio and Helen Mirren taking on the roles of actors Janet Leigh, Anthony Perkins, Vera Miles, writer Joe Stefano and Hitchcock’s wife Alma Reville.

Check out these fascinating new stills along with the second poster.

Said to be more of a love story surrounding the director and his loyal wife, HITCHCOCK will hit UK cinemas 8th February 2013.

Craig was our great north east correspondent, proving that it’s so ‘grim up north’ that losing yourself in a world of film is a foregone prerequisite. He has been studying the best (and often worst) of both classic and modern cinema at the University of Life for as long as he can remember. Craig’s favorite films include THE SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION, JFK, GOODFELLAS, SCARFACE, and most of John Carpenter’s early work, particularly THE THING and HALLOWEEN.
