Sir Anthony Hopkins won an Oscar for playing one of the biggest psychos of all time, Hannibal Lecter, in 1991's The Silence of the Lambs.
Now he's playing the man who directed the movie that had all of America screaming, Alfred Hitchcock, at the time the Hollywood legend was making his classic 1960 film Psycho.
Here, in this first look from the movie Hitchcock, which began shooting last Friday (Hitch would have loved the date, Friday the 13th), Hopkins, 74, is seen as the bald, portly and droll 60-year-old.

Movie history proved golden at this year's Oscars – what with the winning The Artist and Hugo, as well as the nominated My Week with Marilyn – so, what's next?
How about a look-back to Tinseltown's glorious and goriest past with Scarlett Johansson and Anthony Hopkins, who are set to costar in the upcoming Alfred Hitchcock and the Making of Psycho, reports Variety.
Johansson will play leading lady Janet Leigh, who took the screen's most famous shower in the 1960 classic of its genre. James D'Arcy (Madonna's W.E.) will play Anthony Perkins, whose acting career never quite recovered after he was typecast as Norman Bates, a motel owner with something of a mother complex.
