Scarlett Johansson is portraying Janet Leigh in the Fox Searchlight adaptation of Stephen Rebello’s book “Alfred Hitchcock and the Making of Psycho.” She’s joined by Anthony Hopkins as Hitchcock, Helen Mirren as his wife Alma Reville and James D’Arcy as Anthony Perkins.
Directed by Sacha Gervasi (Anvil! The Story of Anvil) from a script by John J. McLaughlin (Black Swan), the bio-pic follows the iconic filmmaker as he overcomes various obstacles to bring Psycho to the big screen.
Johansson will next be seen in geek-mesiah Joss Whedon’s The Avengers. The 26-year-old stunner is also set to play a horny alien in director Jonathan Glazer’s adaptation of Michel Faber’s novel Under the Skin.
