03.21.12 by REELZ
Another big name is on board for Alfred Hitchcock and the Making of Psycho — Sacha Gervasi's adaptation of the book of the same name, which offers a behind-the-scene portrait of the making of the legendary director's 1960 horror classic.
Deadline reports that Jessica Biel has signed on to play Vera Miles (who had the role of Lila Crane in the original Psycho), which is the second biggest female lead in the movie. Her character goes in search of her missing sister Marion (played by Janet Leigh in the original) and finds herself at the Bates motel.
Biel joins Scarlett Johansson, who will play Janet Leigh; Anthony Hopkins, as Alfred Hitchcock; and Helen Mirren, as Hitchcock's wife, Alma. Alfred Hitchcock and the Making of Psycho is set to be released in 2014.
