THR says the Oscar winning actor would play the master of suspense in Alfred Hitchcock and the Making of Psycho which is Montecito's adaptation of the 1998 Stephen Rebello non-fiction book of the same name.

The movie will focus on the famous filmmaker during the period when he created inarguably his most popular movie, Psycho, which was almost never made. Also in the story will be Hitch's relationship with his wife, Alma Reville.

Though the two really don't look alike, the similarities are there. Hollywood make-up will take care of any slack. About the only other person who could pull off the look better would be Winston Churchill, but since he's dead, that's probably not a good idea.
