The film, an adaptation of Stephen Rebello’s non-fiction book, stars Hopkins as the famous director and producer, offering a behind-the-scenes look at the production of his critically acclaimed Psycho.
Hopkins stars opposite a top-notch ensemble, including Scarlett Johansson, Helen Mirren, Jessica Biel, Toni Collette, Danny Huston, Michael Stuhlbarg and Michael Wincott.
