Remakes of Alfred Hitchcock films are nothing new, really. "Strangers on a Train" and "Suspicion" have been named in the past little while as getting makeovers, while the filmmakers behind "Disturbia" were sued for ripping off "Rear Window" by the estate of the author who wrote the original short story on which it's based (the lawsuit failed). Even more recently, Anthony Hopkins was said to be in talks to play the director himself in “Alfred Hitchcock and the Making of Psycho” which is about exactly what the title implies (which of course reminds us of Gus Van Sant's shot-for-shot redo of "Psycho"). A fascinating figure, with an undeniably great body of work, it's not shocking that Hollywood continues to mine the filmmaker for ideas.
