Sir Anthony Hopkins stars in the film, formerly known as "Alfred Hitchock And The Making Of Psycho," touted as a biographical comedy-drama that presents a behind-the-scenes look at the film, which was marred with controversy due to complaints about violence, nudity and other sexual content and claims that a body double was used in Leigh's place during the shower murder scene.

It will also focus on Hitchcock's relationship with his wife Alma Reville, played by Dame Helen Mirren. The story follows the troubled financing of the film classic, the directors battles with Hollywood censors and Hitchcocks desire to prove to his doubters, his wife and himself that he still had an edge.
