Fox Searchlight has released an official image of the star of Hitchcock.
Based on the book Alfred Hitchcock and the Making of Psycho by Stephen Rebello, the film charts the challenges that the legendary director faced on the road to making his seminal movie.
Sacha Gervasi's movie will also star Helen Mirren, Scarlett Johansson, James D'Arcy, Toni Collette and Ralph Macchio.
Jessica Biel was most recently announced to be joining the cast.
The long-gestating project was previously in development at Paramount Pictures with Glee co-creator Ryan Murphy before passing to Gervasi.
Johansson has promised that Hopkins will be "bananas" as Hitchcock.
A release date has yet to be set for Hitchcock.
