Get ready to hear Scarlett Johansson scream. The blonde bombshell has signed on to play Hollywood icon Janet Leigh in Sacha Gervasi’s Alfred Hitchcock and the Making of Psycho.

Gervasi’s film will follow Hitchcock and his struggles during the making of the 1960 horror classic. Anthony Hopkins will play the iconic director, while Helen Mirren will play his wife, Alma Reville. James D’Arcy will play actor Anthony Perkins, who starred as the murderous Norman Bates.
In other casting news, Emma Watson will star opposite American Horror Story’s Taissa Farmiga in Sofia Coppola’s The Bling Ring. The film, based on a true story, tells the story of a group of celebrity-obsessed teenagers who regularly broke into the homes of Hollywood starlets, including Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan.–Erin Fitzsimmons
