Alfred Hitchcock will begin his next directorial offering for Universal with the purchase of "The Short Night," a new novel by Ronald Kirkbride, British author. Production will commence on the heels of Hitchcock's "Topaz," slated for lensing later this month.
"The Short Night" is an adventure drama with a Finnish setting. The director is already planning on three major stars for the principal roles of an American journalist, a notorious spy and his wife.
