This film is getting a lot of buzz in the horror community. Alfred Hitchock was the father of the modern slasher whether he wanted to be or not with Psycho. Now we get to look at the films back story with Making of Psycho. Casting news has just gotten juicy!. Read on for details.


Scarlett Johansson and James D’Arcy have signed on to play Psycho stars Janet Leigh and Anthony Perkins in Fox Searchlight’s Alfred Hitchcock and the Making of Psycho, Montecito’s adaptation of the Stephen Rebello non-fiction book. Varietyhas the news that both will appear opposite Anthony Hopkins as Alfred Hitchcock.

Sacha Gervasi (Anvil! The Story of Anvil) will direct the film, which tells the true tale of Hitchcock’s attempts to finance his now-classic 1960 horror film. Adapted by John McLaughlin, who co-wrote Black Swan, the story is centered on the relationship between Hitchcock and his wife Alma Reville. Helen Mirren is slated to play Alma.

This film is looking to be a must see. Especially since I watch Psycho at least once a month.

    James D’Arcy, yes. Scarlett, no. James at least semi ressembles Anthony Perkins. I don’t see anything ressembling Janet Leigh in Scarlett Johansson.
