We’ve got two Alfred Hitchcock feature films headed our way in the near future, but the first one out of the gate will be HBO’s The Girl. A teaser trailer for the pic has been released, and we get our first look at Toby Jones and Sienna Miller in action as Hitchcock and his The Birds actress Tippi Hedren. Directed by Julian Jarrold, the film examines the legendary director’s obsession with Hedren, and we’ll be seeing a rather unflattering side to Hitch’s personality. Though this teaser is short, we get some of that “creepy Hitchcock” flavor, and Jones looks to be giving quite the performance. I’m eager to see what route the full story takes and how much of the on-set antics from The Birds we’ll get to see play out.
Hit the jump to watch the teaser. The Girl premieres on HBO on October 20th.
While it's admirable to put yourself in harm's way in the defense of others, that altruism eventually ends with a blade between the ribs or being thrown into a prison cell. George R.R. Martin's gift to his characters just keeps on giving.
