Helen Mirren is in talks to join the cast of Montecito's adaptation of the Stephen Rebello non-fiction book "Alfred Hitchcock and the Making of Psycho."
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Sacha Gervasi ("Anvil! The Story of Anvil") is directing.
The project had been set up at Paramount but is now moving to Fox Searchlight.
The 1998 book focuses on Hitchcock, at the height of his influence as a director, who decided to make a horror movie ("Psycho") that no studio wanted. He had to come up with the financing on his own and was vindicated when the film became a hit and eventually became one of the most influential films of all time.
John McLaughlin ("Black Swan") wrote the adaptation, which will center on the relationship between Hitchcock and his wife Alma Reville.
Anthony Hopkins will play legendary director Alfred Hitchcock while Mirren will play Reville.
Mirren was recently seen in "Arthur" and "The Debt."
