It is being reported that Anthony Hopkins is in talks to play Alfred Hitchcock in Alfred Hitchcock and the Making of Psycho, an adaptation of a non-fiction book detailing the lead up to and creation of one of the most influential horror films of all time:

"The book, published in 1998, tracks how Hitchcock, at the height of his game as a director, decided to make a “lowly” horror movie. No studio wanted to touch it initially so Hitchcock scrounged for financing by himself. The movie, of course, became one of his biggest hits and one of the most influential of all time."

No deal is set in place, but the plan is to have documentary director Sacha Gervasi helm this film, which has been scripted by John McLaughlin of Black Swan fame.
