Alfred Hitchcock: A Biopic Fancasting

Alfred Hitchcock had directed over fifty movies before Psycho. Based on the life of Alfred Hitchcock, ‘Hitch’ will follow the man at home, and on the set of much of his life. Alfred Hitchcock is one of the most celebrated directors of all time and in my opinion, he is one of the greatest.
Quite honestly, I am shocked nobody has made a fully-fledged biography drama about him already, in the same way that Oliver Stone did dramas on Nixon and Bush Jr. I believe he is due a biopic detailing his achievements, but also a character study that goes beyond the director’s chair, as many, including Vera Miles spoke about his perversions. He never managed win one of those golden statues. Though, “he’s always watching” isn’t he?
My cast below are those who I’d have in this movie. They are his leading ladies, and men. But they are also people who he would have come into contact with at some time or other in the movie business.
