Four more names sign on for Alfred Hitchcock & The Making of Psycho

It was just twenty four hours ago that I was right here telling you all how Jessica Biel was the latest name to sign on for Sacha Gervasi's ALFRED HITCHCOCK AND THE MAKING OF PSYCHO and now here I am with four more names joining the project! Man these folks are working fast, aren't they!?

According to Variety the latest names to sign on to the flick are Toni Collette, Danny Huston, Michael Stuhlbarg and Michael Wincott. Well technically they're 'in negotiations' but we all know how that usually turns out. Collette would play Peggy Robertson, Hitchcock's longtime assistant; Huston (right) would play Whitfield Cook, Alma's friend; Stuhlbarg would play Lew Wasserman, Hitchcock's charismatic agent and Hollywood-savvy friend; and Wincott would play Ed Gein, the serial killer upon whom the "Psycho" book and movie are based. Works for me!

A gripping behind-the-scenes look inside the classic suspense shocker-and the creative genius who revolutionized filmmaking. First released in June 1960, Psycho altered the landscape of horror films forever. But just as compelling as the movie itself is the story behind it.

Stephen Rebello brings to life the creation of one of Hollywood's most iconic films from the story of Wisconsin murderer Ed Gein the real-life inspiration for the character of Norman Bates to Hitchcock's groundbreaking achievements in cinematography sound editing and promotion. Packed with captivating insights from the film's stars, writers, and crew members, Alfred Hitchcock and the Making of Psycho is a riveting and definitive history of a signature Hitchcock cinematic masterpiece.

Other cast already announced includes Biel (below) as Vera Miles, James D'Arcy will play Anthony Perkins, Scarlett Johansson is set to play Janet Leigh, Helen Mirren is set to co-star as Hitchcock's wife Alma Reville and Anthony Hopkins tops the whole thing off as the man himself, Mr. Alfred Hitchcock.

Filming on ALFRED HITCHCOCK AND THE MAKING OF PSYCHO should start rolling soon and as soon as it does you can bet we'll be right here to tell you about it.
