Scarlett Johansson joins Alfred Hitchcock and the Making of Psycho cast

Not to be confused with the Gus Van Sant remake of Hitchcock's classic PSYCHO, the new film ALFRED HITCHCOCK AND THE MAKING OF PSYCHO has just added Scarlett Johansson to the cast. Johansson will play the role of Janet Leigh, who had a career peak with the famed "shower scene."

Anthony Hopkins will be playing the Master of Suspense, while Helen Mirren will portray his wife, Alma Reville. James D'Arcy will portray Anthony Perkins.

Directed by Sacha Gervasi (ANVIL! THE STORY OF ANVIL) with a script by John Mclaughlin and Tom Thayer, ALFRED HITCHCOCK AND THE MAKING OF PSYCHO follows the path of the famed film's troubled production and the road that led to the making of a classic. 

This sounds like an alluring project with a great cast and an interesting subject.  For those compelled by the process of filmmaking this should be a welcome change of pace from the onslaught of uninspired remakes. 

Plus, seeing Scarlett Johansson in various stages of undress for the shower scene may well be worth admission alone.  While we're always hoping for a good movie, when there's a hottie involved you can't deny that we're also hoping for nudie bits. 

Fingers crossed for both.

Extra Tidbit: Anne Heche was the last actress to portray Janet Leigh's role and recreate the famous "shower scene."

Every cinema should adopt old Alfie's time keeping rule and stop stragglers coming in late to shows. Damn it gets my going almost as much as using your mobile phone. Maybe Hitchcock could be photoshopped into a poster for that too?

I learned recently that this wasn't just about being 5 minutes late, but that it was common practice for people to walk in halfway through a movie, stay to the end, and then stay to watch the first half, as their schedule allowed. Hitchcock didn't want the "reveal" being ruined by this practice, so he was the first to insist on the "start time" of each movie being enforced, and it became tradition after that.

This sounds interesting, and getting to see Scarlett in the shower is always helpful.
