'Making of Psycho' Movie Moving Forward
It's been thirteen months since Psychobabble first reported on the John McLaughlin-penned (Black Swan) bio-pic Alfred Hitchcock and the Making of 'Psycho' to be directed by Sacha Gervasi (Anvil! The Story of Anvil ) and star Anthony Hopkins as Hitch and Helen Mirren as his wife Alma. During the subsequent year, the project has apparently moved forward with the force of a kitchen knife hacking through a shower curtain, because now Bloody Disgusting.com is reporting that two more entire actors have been cast in the film. Scarlett Johansson will be playing Janet Leigh and James D'Arcy ("Secret Diary of a Call Girl") will be Anthony Perkins. Stay tuned for the follow-up in April of 2013 when we find out who will be cast as Martin Balsam.
No stabbing yet, please. We're still a looooong way from filming.
