Anthony Hopkins set to play Alfred HitchcockNovember 14th, 2007 - 10:15 am ICT by admin
“I’m not one of those guys who went to film school and watched Hitchcock movies in order to study, but I admire people who know all about Hitchcock. I’m a real Hitchcock fan. I know all about the movies and had a closer look at why he set that shot up in the way that he did and the skill and rhythm of his movies like Rear Window and Vertigo,” Contactmusic quoted him as saying.
“He was really quite astonishing and there’s so much wit to his work. I think those scenes between Grace Kelly and Jimmy Stewart in Rear Window are so witty and sophisticated. This film I’m going to do is about the making of Psycho and Hitchcock’s doubts about himself,” he added.
Hopkins also said that Hitchcock never considered himself to be a successful filmmaker.
“He never had any real confidence and never felt that he was successful. He always felt a bit like a failure,” he said.
The website also reports the Hopkins felt that Hitchcock looked ill when they had once met for a brief period.
“I met him once very briefly. He was sitting at a place called Ma Maison and I was sitting with my agent… He had just been knighted and he was very heavy, enormous; he looked ill. That was my one contact with him,” Hopkins said. (ANI)
