Thinking of making a biopic that coincides with another major film about the same person? Toby Jones is your man. He pulled it off as Truman Capote up against Philly Seymour Hoffman, and now he's doing it again playing Hitch in The Girl, with Sir Anthony Hopkins as his doppelgänger this time.
Produced by BBC Television in association with HBO, The Girl is a look at the relationship between filmmaker Alfred Hitchcock (Toby Jones) and actress Tippi Hedren (Sienna Miller), which started when he cast her in The Birds, aiming to turn her into the next Grace Kelly.
The Girl is directed by Julian Jarrold, who turned Jimmy McNulty into the creepy killer Fred West in Appropriate Adult.
