Fox Searchlight has announced a November 23rd release date for The Sacha Gervasi-directed film, Hitchcock, starring Academy Award winner Anthony Hopkins in the titular role. Hitchcock is adapted by John J. McLaughlin from Stephen Rebello’s book Alfred Hitchcock And The Making Of Psycho. Along with Hopkins stars Helen Mirren, Scarlett Johansson, Danny Huston, Toni Collette, Jessica Biel, Michael Stuhlbarg, James D’Arcy, Michael Wincott, Richard Portnow, and Kurtwood Smith.

Expect Hopkins to make a push in what is an already crowded Lead Actor race and perhaps Helen Mirren - who plays Hitch’s wife, Alma Reville (it would always be a mistake to discount Mirren’s chances) for Lead Actress. I’m not too certain about its award chances in anything else (other than makeup, perhaps), but I have to say I’m intrigued to see how this late entry plays out.
