"Hitchcock" to Open AFI Fest! 


So I heard that the buzz surrounding Sacha Gervasi's "Hitchcock" is deafening that Fox Searchlight is very confident in entering the film for Oscar considerations. And now, according to THR, "Hitchcock" will make its world premiere on Nov. 1 as the opening-night movie of the AFI Fest 2012.

Directed by Gervasi ("Anvil! The Story of Anvil!") and written by John J. McLaughlin ("Black Swan") based on the book "Alfred Hitchcock and the Making of Psycho" by Stephen Rebello," the cast includes Anthony Hopkins as Sir Alfred Hitchcock, Helen Mirren as Hitchcock's wife and muse, Alma Reville, Scarlett Johansson as Janet Leigh, James D'Arcy as Anthony Perkins, and Jessica Biel as Vera Miles. Danny Huston, Toni Collette, Michael Stuhlbarg, Michael Wincott, Richard Portnow, and Kurtwood Smith completes the cast.

According to Fox Searclight, "Hitchcock" is a love story about one of the most influential filmmakers of the last century, Alfred Hitchcock and his wife and partner Alma Reville. The film takes place during the making of Hitchcock’s seminal movie Psycho.

"Hitchcock" will be released (limited) on Nov. 23, 2012.
