Production is underway on director Sacha Gervasi‘s Hitchcock (formerly titled Alfred Hitchcock and the Making of Psycho), and we now have our first look at Anthony Hopkins completely transformed as the legendary director.  The resemblance is quite startling, and Hopkins looks to be under a good deal of (very well-done) makeup.  It’s certainly a different look than Toby Jones is going for on the competing Hitchcock film The Girl, which focuses on the director’s obsessive relationship with his The Birds star Tippi Hedren Hitchcock, meanwhile, is described as a love story between Hitchcock and his wife and partner Alma Reville (Helen Mirren) which takes place during the troublesome production of the horror classic Psycho.

Hit the jump to get a look at Hopkins as Hitchcock.  The stellar cast includes Scarlett Johansson, Jessica Biel, Toni Collette, Danny Huston, Michael Stuhlbarg, and Kurtwood Smith.
