As Hollywood continues to remake classic films, so far, the works of Alfred Hitchcock have remained relatively untainted. Of course there’s Gun van Sant’s Psycho, pseudo remakes like Disturbia and The Truth About Charlie and other films in development but considering the huge amount of movies Hitchcock made, it’s pretty surprising that we don’t have a new remake being released every single month. According to Moviehole, that trend might be starting, as Piranha 3D screenwriter Josh Stolberg has co-written a remake of the 1955 Cary Grant and Grace Kelly heist film To Catch a Thief, produced by Neal Moritz, and it’s already casting.

The master of suspense, Alfred Hitchcock, loved to kill people. On film, that is. Murder was pretty much Hitchcock’s calling card and in this video by UltraCulture, we see 36 of them happen simultaneously, all timed so the death’s happen at the same time. Besides the brilliance behind all of these films, what a viewer really culls from this video was how important pacing and editing was to make a death truly memorable, and Hitchcock remains the master. Check out the video after the break. Read More »

Just yesterday we told you that Anvil! The Story of Anvil director Sacha Gervasi is in talks to write and direct a film based on Stephen Rebello‘s book Alfred Hitchcock and the Making of Psycho. In the source article for that piece there was a mention that Anthony Hopkins was one of the actors mentioned as a possible on-screen Hitch.

That stemmed in part from a different version of the same film that was in development a few years ago under Running With Scissors director and Glee creator Ryan Murphy. That version never happened, obviously, but now the actor is in talks for the version being developed for Sacha Gervasi to direct. Read More »

Not for lack of trying. At various times there have been Hitchcock biopics in development, and for some time there have been attempts to turn the Stephen Rebello book Alfred Hitchcock and the Making of Psycho into a film. Now there’s a new talent attached to the developing project. Sacha Gervasi, director of Anvil! The Story of Anvil, is in talks to write and direct a film about Hitch. Read More »
