Gus Van Sant’s remake of “Psycho,” which opens Friday, is not being screened for critics, reports The New York Times. The decision was made by Universal Studios and the movie’s producer, Brian Grazer, who told the paper: “We made this choice before even preproduction when we met with Patricia Hitchcock (the daughter of Alfred, and his heir). Hitchcock didn’t have a premiere, he didn’t have sneak previews or have the press see the movie early. He made the movie for $1 million. We made it for $20 million, which is exactly the same amount based on inflation. He made it in six weeks, we made it in six weeks. We made the decision early to do everything the same.”
