Film Adaptation Considered for Alfred Hitchcock/Psycho Book

Alfred Hitchcock and the Making of Psycho by Stephen Rebello
More information about the book

The Los Angeles Times|24 Frames is reporting that a film version of the non-fiction book Alfred Hitchcock and the Making of Psycho by Stephen Rebello is being considered. Sacha Gervasi (Anvil! The Story of Anvil) is looking to write the adaptation and direct the feature. (It isn't clear if the intent here is to fictionalize the story or not.)

Published in 1990, thirty years after Psycho premiered, Stephen Rebello gives readers an intimate glance at the making of this incredible movie from beginning (the true life crime on which Psycho is based) to end (Hitchcock's obsessive instructions to darken theaters and close the curtains for 30 seconds after the opening credits, in order to raise the suspense).

You can read the first chapter(s) of Alfred Hitchcock and the Making of Psycho below:
