"Alfred Hitchcock" Renamed, Settles at Universal

February 24, 2007 (1:54 am) GMT
Ryan Murphy's take on the iconic filmmaker has changed title from "Alfred Hitchcock and the Making of Psycho" to "Alfred Hitchcock Presents" and will be set up at Universal Pictures.

Few changes have been made on what has already been known as "Alfred Hitchcock and the Making of Psycho." Hollywood-Elsewhere.com has reported that the project from now on is called "Alfred Hitchcock Presents" and will be developed under Universal Pictures instead.

Titled the same as the classic TV anthology series the Master of Suspense hosted, the flick previously was being set up at Focus Features with John McLaughlin penning the script. As for the story, it is said that the flick will center on the obstacles and discouragement Hitchcock had to go through in trying to get his popular classic "Psycho" made.

While "Nip/Tuck" creator Ryan Murphy has already been assigned to direct, Hollywood-Elsewhere.com notes that the picture will not likely be his next directorial work, though, as the man is expected to do the Watergate-era "" first at Paramount Pictures.

In terms of casting, however, the site did reveal an interesting tidbit, saying that Universal is attempting to have as the iconic director and as "Alma Reville, Hitchcock's wife and lifelong creative collaborator." Stay tuned for further development and more information on this project.
