03.02.12 by REELZ
Variety reports that Scarlett Johansson
has been cast to play Janet Leigh in Fox Searchlight's Alfred Hitchcock and the Making of Psycho. Director Sacha Gervasi brings light to Alfred Hitchcock's journey and struggles in the making of his classic, Psycho.
Sources have informed Variety that the Hitchcock flick will have considerable similarities to that of My Week With Marilyn and with the recognition Michelle Williams received in her role as Marilyn, Making of a Psycho could make Johansson a future Oscar contender.
Also starring are Anthony Hopkins as Hitchcock, Helen Mirren as Hitchcock's wife, Alma, and James D'Arcy as Anthony Perkins.
