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.
