Anthony Hopkins is nearly unrecognizable as Alfred Hitchcock in the first official photo release from Hitchcock (Previously known as Alfred Hitchock and the Making of Psycho).

Principle photography started last week and the story is based off of a book that details the struggles Alfred Hitchcock faced creating Psycho. The official synopsis describes the film as a love story that takes place during the making of the movie: "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."

Helen Mirren is playing Hitchcock's wife and the rest of the cast includes: Scarlett Johansson (LOST IN TRANSLATION) as Janet Leigh, James D’Arcy (MASTER AND COMMANDER: THE FAR SIDE OF THE WORLD) as Anthony Perkins, Jessica Biel (THE ILLUSIONIST ) as Vera Miles, Michael Stuhlbarg (A SERIOUS MAN) as Lew Wasserman, Toni Collette (LITTLE MISS SUNSHINE) as Hitchcock’s secretary Peggy, Michael Wincott (THE COUNT OF MONTE CRISTO) as Ed Gein, Kurtwood Smith (TO DIE FOR) as Geoffrey Shurlock, Richard Portnow (GOOD MORNING VIETNAM) as Barney Balaban and Danny Huston (THE CONSTANT GARDENER) as Whitfield Cook.
