Movie News: The Karate Kid To Flex His Acting 'Chops' Once More In HITCHCOCK AND THE MAKING OF PSYCHO

How do you follow the stellar casting of Anthony Hopkins, Helen Mirren, Scarlett Johansson and Jessica Biel? You hire the Karate Kid that’s how!

That’s right, in a bizarre move, makers Fox Searchlight and director Sacha Gervasi (ANVIL) have tasked Ralph Macchio to portray screenwriter Joseph Stefano in upcoming biopic HITCHCOCK AND THE MAKING OF PSYCHO (read more about the project here).

It’s not that Macchio hasn’t stopped working since he rose to fame in 1984 as Daniel Larusso, but this is by far and away the highest profile gig in a loooong time. And no, we’re not counting last year's DANCING WITH THE STARS.

We're as bemused as you guys, but mostly because we all know how narrow-minded the business usually is towards actors whose star power have dimmed over the years. Good on the casting directors for even letting him in the room. 

HITCHCOCK AND THE MAKING OF PSYCHO opens early 2013.
