Hitchcock – Official Information
Lurking behind Alfred Hitchcock, cinema’s “master of suspense” — the extraordinary film icon known for orchestrating some of the most intense experiences of menace and intrigue audiences have ever seen, was a hidden side: his creatively explosive romance with his steadfast wife and filmmaking collaborator, Alma Reville.
Now, for the first time, Sacha Gervasi’s Hitchcock lays bare their captivating and complex love story. It does so through the sly, shadowy lens of their most daring filmmaking adventure: the making of the spine-tingling 1960 thriller, Psycho, which would become the director’s most controversial and legendary film.
When the tumultuous, against-the-odds production was over, nothing about movies would ever be the same – but few realized that it took two to pull it off.
Gervasi and a cast that includes Academy Award® winners Anthony Hopkins and Helen Mirren starring as Alfred and Alma spin a story rife with surprises, comic ironies and dark twists in the Hitchockian tradition. But at the heart of the film lies not only the obsessions and fears of two people but the distinctively tenacious love that drove Hitchcock’s art behind the curtain.
Fox Searchlight Pictures presents, in association with Cold Spring Pictures, a Montecito Picture Company and Barnette/Thayer production, Hitchcock directed by Sacha Gervasi with a screenplay by John J McLaughlin based on the book Alfred Hitchcock and The Making of Psycho by Stephen Rebello.
The film also stars Scarlett Johansson as Janet Leigh, Toni Collette as Peggy Robertson, Danny Huston as Whitfield Cook, Jessica Biel as Vera Miles, Michael Stuhlbarg as agent Lew Wasserman, James D’Arcy as Anthony Perkins, Michael Wincott as Ed Gein, Kurtwood Smith as Geoffrey Shurlock and Richard Portnow as Barney Balaban. The film is produced by Ivan Reitman, Tom Pollock, Joe Medjuck, Tom Thayer and Alan Barnette, with Ali Bell and Richard Middleton as executive producers.
The creative team includes two-time Academy Award-nominated director of photography Jeff Cronenweth, ASC (The Social Network, The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo), Academy Award-nominated film editor Pamela Martin, A.C.E (The Fighter), production designer Judy Becker (The Fighter), two-time Academy Award-nominated costume designer Julie Weiss (Frida, Twelve Monkeys), music by four-time Academy Award-nominated Danny Elfman (Good Will Hunting, Milk), and special makeup effects by Academy Award winner Howard Berger (The Chronicles Of Narnia) & Gregory Nicotero
