He­len Mir­ren as Mrs Hitch­cock?

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - News -

Sacha Ger­vasi, di­rec­tor of the sub­lime Anvil! The Story of Anvil!, is a fa­mously well­con­nected chap. Fa­ther of Geri Halliwell’s child, former sec­re­tary to Ted Hughes, writer of Steven Spiel­berg’s The Ter­mi­nal, he doesn’t have much trou­ble get­ting tal­ent on the phone. So we should not be sur­prised to hear that he has per­suaded He­len Mir­ren to play Alma Reville, wife to Al­fred Hitch­cock, in a film based on the mak­ing of Psy­cho.

Who could carry off Hitch­cock? Ti­mothy Spall, maybe. Richard Grif­fiths? It looks as if Ger­vasi might plump for Sir An­thony Hop­kins. That could be fun. (Good Years) New Or­leans pro­ducer comes up trumps with this golden, ex­u­ber­ant new-school house nugget.
