Hitchcock is about the decision/process of Alfred Hitchcock deciding to make a horror film, when this was considered a ‘low’ style of filmmaking and beneath him. Psycho was the film. WHO WAS RIGHT?
It’s interesting to read about how making Psycho was considered a bad move when Hitchcock went that way back in the day. Obviously, it’s one of his greatest achievements, and one of the more successful films of all time. People constantly reference the film, and it is considered the top of the genre.
There isn’t a whole lot of info on the film yet, but it’s about more than just the time leading up to the filming of Psycho. It is said to also cover at least some (if not all) of the filming, and I bet it ends with the release of the film to massive acclaim.
On a side note, no. That’s wrong. As the MAIN point to remember, Scarlett Johansson is said to be showing her jugs! BOOYAH!!! OSCARS HERE I COME!
And I will come. Sacha Gervasi is directing Hitchcock, from a screenplay by Stephen Robello (who also wrote the book this is based on) and John J. McLaughlin. Gervasi doesn’t have a ton of high level experience, though he did direct the documentary Anvil! The Story of Anvil, so he has to be more than a simple director. He’s an auteur.

Anthony Hopkins looks a lot like Alfred Hitchcock in the photo, and he’s an awesome actor. The story seems interesting, and there’s one more thing…
SCARLETT JOHANSSON’S BOOBS.
You expect me to think of something wrong with a film that has boobs that might as well be two orbs from heaven slapping me in the nose?
Hitchcock is an early Oscar contender, with an incredible cast and a story that pays tribute to one of the most legendary directors in history. Add in the underdog approach to showing Hitchcock and you have something pretty darn special. Expect a lot of people to be talking about it. And boobs.
Scarlett Johansson’s boobs.
