Jessica Biel Joins ‘Alfred Hitchcock and the Making of Psycho’

Jessica Biel joins Alfred Hitchcock and the Making of PsychoJessica Biel has joined Sacha Gervasi's Alfred Hitchcock and the Making of Psycho. We reported that Scarlett Johansson landed a part earlier this month. The project already has Anthony Hopkins playing Alfred Hitchcock and Helen Mirren is portraying his wife.

The film will follow every aspect of the creation of director Alfred Hitchcock's famous thriller Psycho released to theaters in 1960. Stephen Rebello's book goes behind-the-scenes for every step in the creation of the film from the story's original inspiration to the controversy surrounding the creation of the famous shower scene. He drew his inspiration from interviews with cast members as well as Alfred Hitchcock's private files.

The actress is playing the role of Vera Miles, who played Lila Crane in the classic. Scarlett Johansson will play Janet Leigh.

Hitchcock was released November 23rd, 2012.

      @jayaottley I kind of like the title. I agree that it's long and straight forward, but that's what makes it interesting. It's certainly not a typical title. Although I wouldn't be surprised if the studio changes it.

        Guess who visited Alfred Hitchc*ck's house while driving through Iowa (that patch of cornfield in the midwest)? THIS GUY.

          @dan1 Definately agree, apparently one of my friends has read the screenplay... he defined it as one of the best scripts he has ever read, and its set to take nominations and win by storm
