Anthony Hopkins: Alfred Hitchcock Movie In The Works For Hollywood Legend Anthony Hopkins!

Anthony HopkinsANTHONY Hopkins wants to play Alfred Hitchcock in a movie.

The Hollywood legend, 73, says he hopes play the legendary filmmaker on screen and has been attached to such a project for four years.

Hopkins says Hitchcock was “a very interesting man, very strange guy, very dark man” and that 0 years ago he saw a film about the making of Psycho that stuck with him as “the most frightening film I have ever seen.”

Hopkins — who says British director Sacha Gervasi is set to direct the Hitchcock film — is hopeful that the project comes to fruition, adding that, in Hollywood today, “you just turn it over and go with whatever happens if you are lucky.”

Hopkins recently admitted he has lost “too much” weight — after he dropped 75 pounds in two years.

“I lost too much, 75 pounds in two years,” he said. “But I gained a little back in Europe. I was addicted to bread, cookies, whatnot. I love all the bad stuff.

“My wife’s no dictator, but she said I must stick to a regimen. So I’m in the gym six days a week, I power walk, live on 800 calories a day. No pasta. No seconds. A sandwich occasionally. Now I’m a health nut. I can’t get back into my wardrobe. I gave it all away to some mission. I tried tailoring the pants but they look ridiculous.

“I can’t do anything but act. I stumbled into the profession 55 years ago. I’m careless. I go astray. Misplace things. As an impractical kid I was hopeless. I’d do odd jobs. If I weren’t an actor I’d be a burglar or seafarer.”
