Scarlett Johansson Cast as Janet Leigh in “Making of Psycho”
The 27-year-old will play opposite Anthony Hopkins and Helen Mirren.
Based on the book of the same name by Stephen Rebello, the film is a behind-the-scenes drama of the cinematic classic. Evidently, ScarJo’s role is small, but fans of the blonde vixen will undoubtedly get plenty of naked eye candy. At the helm will be Sacha Gervasi, best known for the 2008 documentary, Anvil! The Story of Anvil, with a script by John McLaughlin who co-wrote Black Swan. Shooting will commence in April in Los Angeles.
Johansson is slated to appear as Black Widow in The Avengers, set for release on May 4th.
